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


4418. The British Ambassador has received telegram from his Government saying that safe-conduct will be granted for Bernstorff and his party, and that Frederik VIII will be examined at Halifax if it is especially desired. Please inform Foreign Office that in the circumstances the Department would be grateful if the British authorities would carry out their examination at Halifax and not at Kirkwall.
