The Secretary of State to the Ambassador in Argentina (Bliss)

5. Your despatch No. 1914, December 30. Your proposed course of action in this matter is approved. You might emphasize to the Minister for Foreign Affairs that the American financial market had proven itself willing to respond to Argentina’s financial needs on a large scale, that the record of the Argentine governmental authorities is held in high esteem and their sense of justice greatly trusted. Therefore the Argentine authorities have a distinct interest in not having these views prejudiced by any such discriminatory settlement as is proposed when the same purpose could be carried through without discrimination.
