593. For Ambassador Caffery. Referring to your telegram No. 372, November 2, 5 p.m., Aranha just informed me that in view of the fact that his Government is still without news that the British have granted permission to ship this material to Brazil it has instructed the Brazilian steamer Siqueira Campos to sail from Lisbon with the material on November 17 regardless of the attitude of the British Government.

The Willingdon Mission62 is expected to arrive at Rio de Janeiro on November 17.

  1. The British Economic Mission, headed by the Marquis of Willingdon.
