The Acting Secretary of State to the Chargé in Uruguay ( Gade )
5. Your 2, January 3, 1 p.m. Department has cabled the substance of your message to the Legation at Asunción31 outlining also the Uruguayan formula as contained on page 3 of your despatch No. 957 of December 12 and then instructed the Legation as follows:
“You may say to the Minister for Foreign Affairs that this Government considers that the Uruguayan proposal offers a practicable solution of the difficulty and that it feels sure the Paraguayan Government would not wish to have the negotiations break down when a practicable solution is offered. This Government therefore hopes that Paraguay will find it possible to accept the proposal offered by the Uruguayan Government.”
You may so advise the Uruguayan Minister for Foreign Affairs.
