Editorial Note

On April 19, 1950, the Governments of Brazil and the United States exchanged notes agreeing upon terms of payment for certain contingent lend-lease accounts. Text of the notes is contained under cover of a memorandum of April 25, 1950, by C. W. Kempter of the Lend-Lease and Surplus Property Staff. (732.56/4–1950)

The payment of these amounts had been specified, but deferred, by the Brazil–United States Lend-Lease Settlement Arrangement of April 15, 1948. For text of the latter, see Foreign Relations, 1948, volume IX, page 383.
