2648. Referring telegram from Copenhagen dated October 13 regarding Bolshevik literature sent to England and France, Department believes much importance for the future attaches to sound efforts to counteract Bolshevik influence now and limit its scope. On this account this Government regards it of great importance to follow closely all efforts at Bolshevik propaganda both here and abroad. Please ascertain from Foreign Office its views and the measures it is taking; also ask Embassy Paris what is being done in France and report extent of Bolshevik present efforts in both countries.
