The Secretary of State to the Chargé d’Affaires in Russia (Wilson)


Your August 8, 10 a.m. Department approves your course in protesting against any molestation of embassies temporarily in our charge, but if after protest the Government insists upon taking automobiles, the matter will be dealt with by diplomatic correspondence. You should not use force to prevent an execution of the Government’s orders if it decides to remove automobiles.
