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

72. Guani understands that all the American states have accepted the proposal for a protest except Chile and Nicaragua (Colombia has suggested a slight change in form; it is not clear whether Argentina still desires to have her proposed modification recorded). He is telegraphing Panama to confirm foregoing and on receipt of reply will telegraph again late this afternoon to Panama requesting that the text of the protest be made public, together with the names of the states adhering thereto and such observations as Colombia and possibly Argentina may still wish to maintain.

He considers it essential to have the protest published today, feeling that the spectacle of the American states delaying and wrangling over the matter of a protest against ruthless invasion is not particularly edifying.

If you wish to make any suggestion regarding his procedure please advise me at once.

Wilson
