The Secretary of State to the Minister in Uruguay (Wright)
13. Uruguayan Legation at Buenos Aires requested our Embassy there to take charge of Uruguayan interests. Department authorized Embassy to do so and Bliss advised Counselor of Uruguayan Legation last night that he would take chargé of Uruguayan interests.
Argentine Government is anxious for the United States to use its good offices to try to arrange the misunderstanding and restore relations. Please inquire discreetly of Uruguayan Government whether it would look with favor upon such action on our part. If both Governments so desire, of course this Government would be delighted to be of any assistance to them in settling this misunderstanding.
Have any other American countries offered their good offices in this connection?
