The Chargé in Nicaragua ( Ray ) to the Secretary of State
[Received December 3.]
Sir: I have the honor to refer to my despatch No. 340 of November 24, 1936,86 and to transmit herewith copies of the communication referred [Page 852] to in my telegram No. 234 of November 26, 12 noon,86a together with a translation thereof.
The Minister for Foreign Affairs explained to me that he hoped the memorandum would be considered in the same light as if it were a formal note, but what he wanted to keep it strictly confidential and did not wish even the members of his office to know of the contents; for that reason, he said, he had presented an unnumbered memorandum which he had prepared himself.
