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

250. [Here follows summary of telegram printed supra.] The principal basis for such an approach is of course the common bond of race, language and history. While the circumstances are somewhat different in the case of Brazil, you are requested in your discretion to discuss the matter with Aranha4 or with Nabuco.5 It is the feeling of the Department that an expression of interest by the Brazilian Ambassador in Madrid might be very helpful.

  1. Oswaldo Aranha, Brazilian Minister for Foreign Affairs.
  2. Mauricio Nabnco, Secretary General of the Brazilian Foreign Office.
