The Ambassador in Brazil (Caffery) to the Secretary of State
[Received December 16—12:41a.m.]
434. Department’s circular December 15, 1 p.m. Aranha approves “as far as it goes” but feels strongly that this should be only a preliminary step toward stronger action as set out in his first suggestion of my 432, December 15, 2 p.m.
He talked on the telephone this afternoon with Cantilo19 who is in general agreement with his attitude.
Aranha says he expects arrival here tomorrow of English Renown and an aircraft carrier.
