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

101. For Gibson. Your 120, July 6, 9 p.m. The concrete suggestions advanced in the last paragraphs of your cable under reference appear to be both desirable and practical although, of course, the Department must depend upon your own judgment and discretion as to the desirable moment when such suggestions might be made informally and confidentially to Saavedra Lamas by yourself.

I have found your cabled reports exceedingly valuable and I hope you will continue to send similar reports by cable whenever the situation warrants it.

In view of the new difficulties presented by the attitude taken by the Brazilian Minister for Foreign Affairs, it seems essential for you not to leave Buenos Aires for the time being. If later on you feel developments are sufficiently favorable to permit of your flying to Rio de Janeiro for a short stay, please cable the Department accordingly.
