The Personal Representative of the President ( Caffery ) to the Acting Secretary of State
[Received 8 p.m.]
49. My telegram No. 47, January 18, 1 p.m.13 I believe that the new government will have large public support. The communistic element will, of course, make every effort to stir up trouble for it and is responsible for the strike of employees of certain government departments and employees of the Electric Company which is now in effect. Nevertheless the Government is dealing firmly with the situation and it is my opinion that it will be capable of maintaining law and order. There is a very evident feeling of relief and enthusiasm throughout the city. I believe that most Latin American representatives here will recommend immediate recognition.
