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

192. From Braden. Paraguayan delegation yesterday afternoon delivered long note protesting Conference control between lines of separation and of Villa Montes road. This has precipitated extremely delicate situation. Because of Major Weeks’ experience on Neutral Military Commission and as military observer Conference requests that he be retained in Buenos Aires instead of leaving for Chaco as planned. Therefore unless I am instructed to the contrary he will remain here temporarily. [Braden.]
