The purpose of this thesis is to make a study of the relations between the United States and Argentina, leading to the recognition of Argentina. The period covered will essentially be from August 27, 1810, the date of the first United States mission to Argentina, to January 27, 1823, the date of formal recognition of Argentina by the United States . The name Argentina will be absent from this study since it is the modern day name for a similar territory known during this period as first, the United Provinces of the Rio de la Plata, and as the Republic of Buenos Aires when recognition was accorded. Major emphasis in this study has been placed upon the agents of this pre-recognition period and the neutrality and recognition policy as established by the United States. Chapter II has been devoted to agents of the United States sent to the United Provinces. Chapter III has been devoted to the agents sent by la Plata to the United States. The neutrality policy of the United States, as it affected Spanish America, is the subject for Chapter IV, and the recognition policy of the United States is discussed in Chapter V. Texts of the more important document s used in this thesis have been placed in the Appendix . A list of these has been included in the table of contents, and the reader is referred to them by footnotes.
