By the President of the United States of America
Whereas, by Proclamation No. 1923, issued on October 22, 1930, under a joint resolution of Congress entitled "Joint resolution to prohibit the exportation of arms or munitions of war from the United States to certain countries, and for other purposes," approved January 31, 1922 (42 Stat. 361), it was declared that there existed in Brazil such conditions of domestic violence as were or might be promoted by the use of arms or munitions of war procured from the United States; and
Whereas, by the joint resolution above mentioned, it thereupon became unlawful to export arms or munitions of war from the United States to Brazil except under such limitations and exceptions as were prescribed in the said proclamation;
Now, Therefore, I, Herbert Hoover, President of the United States of America, do hereby find, as has been formally represented to this Government by the Government of Brazil, that the conditions on which the proclamation of October 22, 1930, was based no longer obtain, and I do hereby declare and proclaim that the said proclamation of October 22, 1930, is accordingly hereby revoked.
In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.
Done at the City of Washington this 2d day of March, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and thirty-one, and of the Independence of the United States of America the one hundred and fifty-fifth.
By the President:
HENRY L STIMSON
