- DEPARTMENT OF STATE ASSISTANT SECRETARY COPY March 5, 1940 MEMORANDUM TO THE PRESIDENT Concerning the reply to the message from the [underlined] "Naval Person", Secretary Hull asks me to suggest the attached cable. It merely buys us another forty-eight hours to work on the situation. The principal point at issue is the Moore McCormick run to Bergen. If that line keeps its contract with Brazil, and turns over its ships to the Brazilian government, the [handwritten suggestion] B? [typed] Gergen run probably would auto- matically cease. If it is retained, arrangements could be worked out covering the situation: but they will take a few days. /s/ A. A. B., Jr.
