238. The morning press indicates almost certain Allied intervention in Siberia in favor of Russia against German domination. Should this be contemplated recommend consulates in Russia be instructed to go to Vladivostok to perform such duties as may be recommended. Intervention will render further stay in Russia perilous. Remainder Americans in Moscow leaving to-morrow for Vladivostok. [I] will remain with Poole as long as we can be of any assistance. Under no circumstances would we leave until after Ambassador’s telegram.
