Diplomatic Relations between the United States and Brazil

By Lawrence F. Hill | Go to book overview

FOREWORD

THE STUDY presented in the following pages represents an attempt to tell in comparatively brief space the story of the diplomatic relations between the United States and Brazil since the latter's independence. The plan of the work permitted the inclusion only of such material of a commercial and financial nature as seemed to have affected diplomatic intercourse.

The account is based primarily on manuscript material found in ministerial despatches (seventy-two large volumes to August, 1906), consular letters, instructions to American diplomatic agents, and communications between the United States foreign office and the Brazilian diplomatic agents at Washington. But it is also based in part on the publications of the two governments (such as Foreign Relations and the House and Senate documents of the United States and the Relatorios and the Annaes of Brazil), on contemporary newspapers of both countries, and on such monographs and special treatises as have appeared on topics which fall within the century covered. These sources, aggregating several hundred volumes, include all the official correspondence that passed between the Washington and Rio governments. The writer believes they contain sufficient material adequately to reveal official and public reaction to the issues considered from time to time. Foreign archives, some of which doubtless contain valuable material on the subject in hand, have not been examined for two reasons: they are not open for more than half of the period covered by the study and the writer does not consider the subject, as significant as it is, worth the endeavor of an entire lifetime. He invites those who may be inclined to criticise him for failure to utilize all the sources
