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

Referring to Minister Wilson’s telegram No. 69 of May 15, 11 a.m. transmitting change proposed by Argentine Minister for Foreign Affairs in last paragraph of Uruguayan draft protest, Cantilo informs me that the Brazilian Government has approved the Argentine change and that he desires to learn our Government’s views as soon as possible. If we also approve he hopes the change can be made as his Government feels that the present draft is too weak. If we do not approve change or feel that time element makes suggested change impracticable, his Government, in order to maintain united front, would be willing to accept original Uruguayan draft.

Repeated to Rio de Janeiro and Montevideo.
