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

457. From the Under Secretary. Your 695, June 20, 7 p.m. Kindly inform Aranha that I was delighted to learn that he viewed sympathetically the Uruguayan proposal. I consider it farsighted and enlightened and giving content to the oft-repeated inter-American pledges of solidarity. I am certain that the Government of Uruguay would deeply appreciate whatever support Aranha feels that he can give to the proposition before such other governments as Brazil might be prepared to approach in a purely informal way. I am sending a circular telegram to all our missions, except yours, instructing them to endeavor tactfully to find occasion to express this Government’s views. [Welles.]
