The Ambassador in Argentina (Stimson) to the Secretary of State


258. My telegram no. 256 of today.88 After a consultation with Mr. Wadsworth I cannot ascertain that an official invitation has been extended to the Secretary of State to visit Argentina, or that he will be entertained as a national guest. I learn from an unimpeachable [Page 232] private source that several weeks ago the Argentine Ambassador at Washington cabled his Government to send a torpedo boat to bring Mr. Colby and his party to Buenos Aires from Montevideo, but that this request was negatived by President Irigoyen.
