The Acting Secretary of State to the Ambassador in Uruguay (Dawson)
181. Your 317, July 23, 6 p.m. The Department tactfully brought to the attention of the Uruguayan Minister that the Minister of National Defense had stated that Uruguay would require the full $17,000,000 for needed material. The Minister had previously suggested a figure of $5,000,000 but he has now indicated that he will send the texts in Spanish and English on the $17,000,000 basis to his Government by airmail.
