Memorandum of Conversation, by the Under Secretary of State (Welles)

The British Counselor called to see me this morning in the place of Lord Lothian who was ill.

I told Mr. Butler that I desired to see Lord Lothian in order to read to him the last reports that the Department had received from the American Embassy in Rio de Janeiro concerning the Siqueira Campos controversy and I stated that from the last reports received, I had obtained the hope that the whole matter might now be settled promptly in a friendly manner.
