The Minister in Paraguay ( Howard ) to the Secretary of State
[Received 12:35 p.m.]
25. My 24, February 20, 7 p.m. In view of instructions to the Argentine Chargé d’Affaires implying the withholding of recognition, the Italian, German, French, Spanish and British Diplomatic Representatives altered their decision of last evening and did not attend Dr. Stefanich’s special audience this morning. In the absence of instructions I of course did not attend. Consequently only the Mexican, Brazilian, Chilean, Cuban and Uruguayan representatives presumably visited the Foreign Office.
