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


6138. For Gibson from Bell:

Your 4760, April 26, 7 p.m.1 All experience here shows postal censorship should be under military and not under postal authorities since the act of censorship is the very negation of the postman’s duties. I strongly urge that War Department be given charge of this duty and Lassiter2 is telegraphing to the same effect.

  2. Col. William Lassiter, military attaché at London.
