The Minister in Guatemala (Whitehouse) to the Secretary of State

6. Your No. 2.8 There is so far as I am aware no objection to Andrade’s government from any quarter and it is meeting with the general [Page 398]support of the authorities and people. Conditions are practically normal and no counterrevolution is to be feared.

The Cabinet changes mentioned in my 3, January 2, 5 p.m. would, I find, cause difficulties for internal political reasons and I am glad the Department does not insist on them.

The decree calling the elections for February 6, 7 and 8 will be issued tomorrow or Monday.

Whitehouse
  1. Supra.
