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

689. From the Under Secretary. Your 954, July 28, 6 p.m. Please telegraph me at the earliest possible moment whether the question which President Vargas said he was submitting to the consideration of the Mixed Commission of General Staff officers has yet been decided. The War Department here has no information on this point and neither have I. I shall appreciate it if you can send me this information rapidly, particularly if the reply is favorable, [Welles.]
