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


6509. Confidential to Secretary and President:

The Prime Minister asked me to breakfast this morning to discuss the desirability of trying to induce Austria and especially Bulgaria to make separate peace, but his conclusion is that under present conditions any effort would be premature in this matter. Coming events in Russia play so large a part that it seems better to wait and see whether Russia will again show important military activity.
