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

85. Department’s 52, April 9, 9 p.m. Foreign Minister received the information in question with the observation that the Governments of Argentina and Chile had had their attention called to this omission several weeks ago and had done nothing to rectify the typographical error.

The Brazilian answer to the invitation is now awaiting possible modification by the President but will probably be transmitted tomorrow. Foreign Minister states it will not touch on the unsympathetic argument of logic but will concentrate on the fact that Brazil has been omitted from the proposed economic conference and Uruguay included; it will contain, however, general terms so similar to ours that the door will definitely be left open. If Brazilian Government does not telegraph text of answer to Aranha does Department wish me to telegraph full text?
