The Secretary of State to the Chargé in Brazil ( Crosby )


57. Your March 4, 1 p.m., and April 15, 1 p.m.;2 Department’s April 17, 4 p.m. If necessary to secure acceptance of American mission it is now thought that it will be possible for the Navy Department to detail Captain Vogelgesang as head of naval mission to Brazil. Ascertain informally from the President whether he still desires Captain Vogelgesang for this work, and inform him that Captain Vogelgesang will be available, should you feel that such an offer is necessary and would bring about acceptance of American mission.
