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

1739. Dawson45a reports in cable which is being repeated to you that Uruguayan Govt is greatly concerned by apparent preparations by Argentina to apply drastic economic sanctions because of Uruguayan initiative. You should immediately fully but discreetly investigate and report by cable all evidence of such preparation, obtaining documentary evidence and comparable proof whenever possible. As you will note from our instructions to Dawson, we do not feel that it is advisable to take matter up with Argentine Govt at this time.
