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

139. Since the Department has not yet received a reply to its 128, July 1, 7 p.m., and owing to difficulty of completing arrangements, it now appears unlikely that mission could arrive in Buenos Aires until the eve of the Havana Conference11 at the earliest. It seems advisable therefore to defer arrival until after the conference adjourns. This, however, would have the advantage that the discussion of Argentina’s current problems could take place in the light of plans and principles developed at the conference. Please advise appropriate authorities in the above sense and ascertain whether this arrangement would be satisfactory to them.
