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

272. 266, June 11, midnight [noon]. For Under Secretary. President Vargas … promises to have a statement issued that his speech was misinterpreted and that the only international issue in his speech was the defense of Pan American ideals and solidarity, etc, et cetera.

He promises also to take early opportunity to make another speech correcting the impression made.

My interpretation remains that of 266, June 11, midnight [noon] although I admit that Vargas did not realize the full international complications.
