The Secretary of State to the Ambassador in Paraguay (Frost)
346. Your 445, August 11. Before any action can be taken towards furnishing a Military Mission a formal request will have to be received from the Paraguayan Government. The Foreign Office note No. 301 of April 10 enclosed in your despatch no. 948 of April 1339 does not of course constitute such a request.
Upon receipt of a formal request and an indication that all of the terms and conditions stipulated in the Department’s airgram 222, May 5, including departure from Paraguay of the members of the French Mission, meet with the approval of the Paraguayan Government, the Department will recommend to the War Department that a Military Mission be assigned to Paraguay.
