The Minister in Sweden ( Morris) to the Secretary of State


3233. Am reliably informed that at a conference of Russian and Scandinavian Bolsheviks it has been decided to send Bolshevik delegates into Holland and Switzerland from where it is hoped to get agents into France and Belgium. The delegates are to be supplied with large sums of money with which to have printed the necessary propaganda and are to be provided with false Swedish passports which the Swedish Independent Socialists have agreed to furnish. One of the delegates is to be the well-known Russian Bolshevik Mikhailov.

It has been also decided to ask the Spartacus group of Socialists in Berlin to leave agents in the territory to be occupied by the Allied troops, which agents will be supplied with money by the Russian Bolsheviks.

Have drawn the attention of the Swedish Government to the question of false Swedish passports.
