The Ambassador in Brazil ( Morgan ) to the Secretary of State
[Received December 10—3:49 p.m.]
103. Department’s 77, December 9, 4 p.m. Resolution adopted by Naval Committee of Chamber corresponds to information contained [Page 327] in Department’s telegram 77 following Minister of Marine’s recommendation renewed frequently in recent years. Naval Mission in no wise responsible. Unlikely that national resources will make it possible to carry out any such program. Attaché Glenn Howell, who leaves today, will fully report. Orders will probably be placed abroad if at all in several countries with the firms which grant longtime payments irrespective of cost.
