The Secretary of State to the Chargé in Argentina (Tuck)

219. Department’s 203, September 8, 2 p.m. The Department has discussed with the Treasury the possibility of sending to Buenos Aires an important Treasury official who would be capable of and authorized to discuss and conclude a monetary and exchange arrangement with the Argentine authorities. After giving careful and sympathetic consideration to all of the points raised by Dr. Pinedo, the Secretary of the Treasury believes that, considering all the circumstances, such a negotiation could more appropriately take place in Washington. Please discuss the situation with Dr. Pinedo and inform him that the Secretary of the Treasury would be glad to discuss in Washington the possibilities of such arrangements with him personally or with any representative whom he may choose to name.
