Please cable the Department of any views which may have been expressed to you by the Minister for Foreign Affairs regarding present developments in Paraguay. The public declarations as to its foreign policy made by the new Paraguayan regime would appear to be reassuring.

The Department would be glad to know particularly the views of the Brazilian Government as to the stability of the new regime and the probability that it can maintain itself in power.
