The Ambassador in Germany (Gerard) to the Secretary of State


1926. Referring my 1824, March 11, regarding proposal for basis of international agreement for securing information concerning condition of prisoners of war. I have now received copy of note from British Office to Mr. Page, dated March 20, which, while appearing to accept these proposals in principle does not give a definite affirmative reply. What I desire is a specific acceptance by the Governments of Great Britain, France, and Russia of my definite and advantageous proposals already approved and accepted by the German Government. Please urge early reply.
