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

126. Your 87, May 26, 11 a.m. A separate telegram is being sent to you concerning the appointment of Major Price.57

With respect to the rumored appointment of Dr. Aguado as Chairman of the National Board of Elections, the Department does not understand how this could be effected inasmuch as Captain Johnson continues to hold that position. See the Department’s instruction No. 135, dated March 7, 1931.

By the appointment of Major Price as Vice Chairman of the National Board of Elections he will preside over that Board in the absence of Captain Johnson thus completing its organization.
