The Ambassador in Nicaragua ( Warren ) to the Secretary of State

499. President Somoza received me at noon today. I gave him the message contained in the Dept’s number 337 of Sept 4, 7 p.m. I repeated the message in different words three times. The President understands, but he intends to keep the Embassy and the Dept fully informed of developments in the selection of the proper person to receive the Nicaraguan presidential nomination. He said as much.
