The Consul General at São Paulo (Cameron) to the Secretary of State

Four Dictator airplanes flew over this city yesterday dropping various bombs on the Campo Domarte which is aviation field of the Força Publica located within the urban limits, no damage. Should the barracks of the Força Publica be bombed there would be great danger to life and property since such barracks are located at various points in the business and residential sections. Yesterday afternoon headquarters building of Força Publica caught fire from some explosion inside building and was totally destroyed. Bulletins dropped by the enemy airplanes yesterday advised that Minas Geraes supporting Dictator. Perfect order in the city and interior of State and inquirers may be advised that staff of this Consulate General, American residents and property safe since I shall immediately advise any contrary occurrences.
