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

2039. Department’s 1340, December 12 [11], 3 p.m. Professor Fenwick’s message was delivered to Doctor Mello Franco. He will bring the matter before the Committee on December 15. Dr. Franco is of the belief, however, that the Committee cannot extend its functions without the consent of the interested governments. He suggests that this matter be studied at the meeting of Ministers of Foreign Affairs shortly to take place in Rio.
