The Acting Secretary of State to the Chargé in Argentina (Wadsworth)

116. You may inform the Minister for Foreign Affairs that this Government is glad to find that the two Governments are in accord regarding recognition of Bolivia. In the opinion of the Department it cannot be ascertained whether the present Government has the formal support of the Bolivian people until after the elections, and this Government, therefore, believes it advisable to wait until a government has been formed after these elections in accordance with the Constitution before recognizing it.

The Government of the United States will communicate with the Argentine Government before taking any action looking towards recognition and would be glad to receive similar notification from the Government of Argentina.
