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

No. 10948

Sir: I have the honor to report that Aranha27 told me today that the Brazilian Government hopes that the Brazilian Military Mission now in North Africa (my telegrams Nos. 906 of February 22, 5 p.m. and 1229 of March 12, 4 p.m.)28 will be allowed to remain there indefinitely. He added that he hoped that a rumor that had reached him that they would be permitted to stay only six weeks was untrue.

Respectfully yours,

Jefferson Caffery
