The Minister in Uruguay (Grant-Smith) to the Secretary of State


68. Last night I learned from the Argentine Minister that the Government of Uruguay is consulting that of Argentina in regard to representations at Lima. The Minister is of opinion that representations should not be independent but either joint or identic; he thought it was doubtful, however, whether they could be made before Government of Peru had sent its reply to your proposal. The Minister had communicated with Argentine Foreign Office yesterday morning by telephone.
