The Chargé in Nicaragua (Hanna) to the Secretary of State
[Received 6:12 p.m.]
143. Legation’s telegram 131, May 7, 2 p.m. President Moncada told me today that he is anxious to constitute the proposed Claims Commission and is only awaiting the Department’s designation of the American member. He said nothing of submitting the decree creating the Commission for the Department’s consideration.
He also brought up the subject of American supervision of Nicaraguan elections (see my telegram of May 16, 11 a.m. 138)87 and said he would appreciate the Department’s further views in the matter.
