The Ambassador in Argentina (Stimson) to the Secretary of State
[Received 7.35 p.m.]
Your December 15th, 4 p.m. At my conference with the Minister for Foreign Affairs he made an urgent memorandum that the approval of the location for the cable be expedited. Both Stabler and the Embassy have been in contact with the Ministers every day and have been assured that there is nothing but the routine of getting the signatures of the several departments which causes the delay. Application is still in the Bureau of Navigation, under Public Works. When approved there it has to go to the Department of the Interior and then only for final signature of the President. I shall see the Minister for Foreign Affairs again tomorrow.
