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

[Paraphrase]

29. Your telegram no. 13, January 31, has been acted upon. I was informed by the Under Secretary of Foreign Affairs that the recognition of Bolivia has already been the subject of discussion between the Department and the Argentine Ambassador in Washington. The Ambassador has been instructed to inform you that his Government concurs fully in the decision taken by the Government of the United States, and has suggested February 5th as the date to extend recognition to the Bolivian Government. If, in the Department’s opinion, this date is too early, the Argentine Government will gladly accept a later date.
