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

73. My 72, May 17, noon. Instead of the message mentioned in my telegram under reference Guani is now cabling Panama that he [Page 738] has just heard that Argentina has definitively withdrawn its proposed modification and that Chile will reply tonight. He is requesting the Panamanian Government to advise him of the nature of the Chilean reply and whether Nicaragua has as yet replied. After hearing from Panama he will then urge that the protest be published tomorrow with the names of the countries accepting it and such observations as any of them may have made. He would appreciate it if you would request our Legation at Managua to urge the Nicaraguan Government to reply favorably to Panama tonight.
