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

1995. Department’s 1263, April 19, 9 p.m. The Minister of Finance raises the following objections to the proposed letter:

(1) The price for Victoria ⅞ should be 7.40 cents per pound, which was the price agreed upon originally (see Embassy’s despatch 11060 [11066] of April 30 [1943]94) and at which purchases have been made; and (2) the second paragraph should read “f.o.b. steamer on the basis of Paranaguá 4’s” instead of “f.o.b. steamer for Paranaguá 4’s”.

The Minister concurs in the remainder of the letter and he indicated that he will request the Minister for Foreign Affairs to sign it when the above mentioned points are clarified. It is felt that these are the most favorable terms that can be obtained.
