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

23. Your 46, February 29, 11 a.m.

Point 7. In view of your assurances that we would not be waiving any rights by agreeing to giving Nicaragua in memorandum form the first two sentences quoted under this point in the Department’s telegram No. 14 of February 22, 8 p.m., you are authorized to agree to do so. The Department still regards this as an undesirable procedure, however, and wishes you not to use this authority except as a last resort.
