The Secretary of State to the Ambassador in Brazil (Gibson)

74. Your 133, May 25, 7 p.m. Aranha advised me this morning that he has sent no such message to President Vargas as that alleged. He informed me that the story is probably based upon letters which he addressed to President Vargas in the early part of 1935 prior to the conclusion of the trade agreement negotiations.10
