The Secretary of State to the Minister in Nicaragua ( Lane )
Washington , February 23, 1934—11 a.m.
14. Your 61, February 22, 8 p.m. You may in your discretion say orally to Somoza that there has been no change in the Department’s policy. We, however, believe it inadvisable to make any public statement either in Managua or here on this point, at least at the present moment. Please, however, continue to let us have your views in the matter.
