The Chargé in Brazil ( Donnelly ) to the Secretary of State
[Received December 14.]
Sir: I have the honor to attach copy of a memorandum prepared by a member of the Embassy staff concerning the possible issuance of a decree controlling imports into Brazil.
I immediately called this matter to the attention of the Minister of Finance who said the decree had not been signed and that he would discuss it fully with me next week (when he returns from São Paulo). I pointed out to the Minister that the new measure would conflict with the Brazilian-American trade agreement.
