The Ambassador in Great Britain (Page) to the Secretary of State


2437. Department’s 1677, June 7, re porcelain guides contracted for by the Mitchell-Bissell Company, New York., Foreign Office informs me in reply to my representations regarding above—

that according to information in possession of British Government these articles are readily procurable in United Kingdom or elsewhere. They are, it is understood, largely manufactured, for instance, by Mr. George Wade, Manchester Pottery, Burslem, among others in same district, and in the circumstances there does not appear to British Government to be any cogent reason for requesting special facilities to export them from Germany.
