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

248. My 241, October 22, 2 p.m. Lieutenant Colonel Christian and Captain Brereton leave today for Buenos Aires, the former proceeding tomorrow by air for the United States.

The conversations here have been highly satisfactory. Future developments, however, and the maintenance of the existing cordial attitude on the part of Uruguay as regards cooperation with the [Page 171]United States in questions of continental defense will depend in large measure upon our willingness and ability to make available to Uruguay certain essential military and naval material.
