- (marked) copy of memorandum by Richard K Decker, November 1962, advising on legal interpretation of the relationship between Cape and its subsidiary NAAC viz. whether US courts would be inclined to think they have jurisdiction of Cape, (a) because Cape's effect on US trade could be shown to be direct and substantial, and (b) because the NAAC as Cape's agent plays an active part in Cape's business which "is continuous and could not be easily carried out without NAAC"
