The Minister in Uruguay (Wright) to the Secretary of State

44. Uruguayan press today carries Department’s announcement to the press regarding extension of our good offices. The delicacy of the situation arising from the change in attitude of the Argentine Government, of which Bliss has kept me closely informed, has rendered it advisable for me to limit my reply to all press inquiries here:

“I have as yet received no official information that my Government has made such an announcement to the press.”
