File No. 723.2515/119.

The Secretary of State to the American Minister to Argentina.


Your March 28. If desirable you may intimate to the Minister for Foreign Affairs that, as I have told the Chargé d’Affaires here, whatever the United States has heard of the reported project (which did not emanate from Washington) was entirely hypothetical and [Page 1186] preliminary and was of course fully considerate of the Argentine Government.

Repeat your March 28 and this reply to Petropolis for Dudley’s information.
