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


1694. Your 1107, February 10. Foreign Office informs me that instructions were issued to British censors last September that telegrams exchanged between North and South America were to be passed without censorship. British Government thinks that either United States Government has been misinformed regarding the authorities by whom the telegrams in question have been stopped, or that some of the British censors have misunderstood their instructions. If information received by United States Government proves to be correct, British Government asks for details regarding stopping of telegrams in order to correct misunderstanding which must have occurred.
