The Ambassador in Brazil (Morgan) to the Secretary of State

Supplementing Embassy’s telegram of October 24th, 11 a.m., it gives me pleasure to report that the President of Brazil has signed a decree granting the Central and South American Cable Company a concession to lay a cable from Rio de Janeiro to Cuba via the island of Fernando de Noronha. This decree, together with one for the Rio to Uruguay concession, will go for registration to Tribunal de Contas, which the President believes will act favorably.
