The Ambassador in Argentina (Jay) to the Secretary of State
[Received 4:30 p.m.]
98. My No. 96, December 9, 8 p.m. Minister Gallardo informed me that he communicated to the President, when the latter returned after [Page 520] brief absence from the city, the Brazilian Government’s reply which expresses the opinion that intervention at Lima is inopportune at present moment for reasons that have already been explained to Morgan. Although Argentina does not contemplate any immediate action, Mr. Gallardo thinks that delay of Government of Peru in replying to your memorandum is a favorable sign.
