The Ambassador in Russia ( Francis ) to the Secretary of State

[Telegram]

2309. Your 2014. French Ambassador informs us that he received no instructions from his Government to protest against retaliatory measures against Rumanian subjects in Russia. As he of course participated in joint protest of Diplomatic Corps against arrest of Rumanian Minister and as the latter has now been expelled from Russia1 further action or protest appears to be useless.

Francis
