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

66. Reference telephone conversation with Bonsai this morning. Guani has just been informed that the telegram addressed last night to the President of Panama has been circularized to all the American Governments. The Uruguayan Government will, therefore, cable tonight at 9 o’clock (7:30 Washington) the draft text of declaration to the Uruguayan representatives in eight Latin American countries instructing them to submit the text tomorrow to the governments to which they are accredited with the request that the governments cable their reply to the President of Panama without delay.

Guani requests that you cable the text indicating the same procedure to our representatives in Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Haiti, Dominican Republic, Cuba, Venezuela and Ecuador. It is understood that you will advise the Government of Panama that the United States approves the text.

In the second paragraph of the draft text please change “tenth resolution” to read “ninth resolution” adding immediately thereafter in parentheses the title of the resolution.

As explained this morning the words in the third paragraph “find themselves forced” are replaced by “resolve”.

Please advise me of the replies made by the 11 Governments mentioned above.
