El Chipote, 12 December 1927.
Rigoberto Reyes, Jinotega.
I have seen the order that you sent to our authorities of
Yalí in order that they hold elections for local
authorities. I must tell you that in order to accomplish
this, it will be necessary that you and the rest of the
mercenaries who are in the Campo de Marte, take the lead of
an army and come and disarm me, as otherwise, you have no
right to give such orders. If you so eagerly wish to master
this zone, you should hold your rifle so that you would
realize how the genuine sons of my country defend the
national honor. You are a coward, and you prove it by having
joined to the traitor, Adolfo Díaz. Do not believe that you
are safe. You will soon hear the first bombs in the suburbs
of Jinotega, and that will be the true notice that your end
is near. Traitors have no right to life. Coward!!
