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

52. My telegrams numbers 47 and 50. Minister for Foreign Affairs sent for me this morning and said that a conference took place yesterday between the President, Minister of Hacienda and himself at which proposed tariff law and reciprocal trade agreement were discussed. Dr. Argüello stated that Congress is to adjourn next week until December and inquired when trade agreement negotiations might be continued. I informed him that I am awaiting further instructions from the Department. He said he would deeply appreciate it if we could recommence negotiations prior to adjournment of Congress.
