No. 16606

Sir: Referring to my despatch No. 16586 of June 24, 1944, I have the honor to remind the Department that the Minister of War30 objected to the inclusion in the Military Aviation Agreement31 recently signed by the Minister for Foreign Affairs32 and me, of an article which would have given jurisdiction to our military authorities over offences committed by members of our armed forces in Brazil.

Respectfully yours,

Jefferson Caffery
  1. Gen, Eurico Gaspar Dutra.
  2. For correspondence on this agreement, concluded by an exchange of notes signed June 14, 1944, see pp. 543 ff.
  3. Oswaldo Aranha.
