Former Brazilian governor, exiled in Montevideo, receives a report about military situation in Brazil



This report recounts that one of Brizola’s relatives, João Calixto, took a three-day trip from Porto Alegre (Brazil) to Montevideo (Uruguay) to deliver a report about the military situation in Brazil. The report states that the former governor of Rio Grande do Sul state (southern Brazil) would be “inactive” from thereafter, considering that nothing more could be done in Brazil. Brizola was living in an estancia in the Uruguayan department of Durazno. The letter is unsigned and stamped at the bottom.
