The Minister in Nicaragua (Hanna) to the Acting Secretary of State

146. The American Consul at Puerto Cabezas has just informed me that Mr. Scott, Manager of the Bragmans Bluff Lumber Company at that port, desires airplanes stationed there to cooperate with the Guardia and that he has asked his New Orleans office to transmit his views to the Department.

The practicability of providing continuous airplane cooperation with the Guardia at Puerto Cabezas has been receiving our attention here for some days and the question will be decided when the commander of the air squadrons returns from the east coast tomorrow.
