The Ambassador in Colombia (Braden) to the Secretary of State

296. My telegram No. 293, September 26. Minister for Foreign Affairs points to fact Colombian quota was cut 50,000 sacks from New York allocation as compared with Brazil only 20,000. His Government earnestly hopes Colombian allotment may be increased somewhat, perhaps difference being distributed among other countries since otherwise it will encounter great political and public resistance.
