The Brazilian Minister for Foreign Affairs (Aranha) to the Under Secretary of State (Welles)
[Received September 30—1:50 p.m.]
I wish to express to you my satisfaction for the signing of the agreement for financial and technical assistance by the United States in the establishment in Brazil of a large scale iron and steel industry, and to thank the Department of State and my dear friend for the interest which they have always given to this undertaking from the beginning of our conversations at the time I served as Ambassador there. No factor may better reveal the decision of the United States to collaborate for the prosperity of Brazil and of the American continent. Cordial greetings.
