The Ambassador in Brazil ( Gibson ) to the Acting Secretary of State
[Received December 8—4:24 p.m.]
I have conveyed the purport to the Department’s telegram No. 103, December 6, noon, to the chief of the commercial section of the Foreign Office. He stated that the list of tariff reductions which we are asking are very long and that consultations with other Government departments are necessary, but promised to expedite a reply to our proposal.
