9069. My 8946, March 7, 11 p.m. In addition to the three delegates mentioned, namely, Jouhaux, Demaine and Huysmans, the following have now been appointed: for Great Britain, G. Stewart Bunning, Secretary, Postmen’s Federation and a member of Labor Party Committee; for Italy, Canopa, reformist and supporter of Bissolati. Besides Jouhaux, who is a Trade Union representative, [Page 153]the French are also sending as political representative, Cachin, the deputy who went to Russia last summer with Moutet. Henderson states that he hopes the six delegates will sail next week. J. H. Thomas is unable to leave and although Henderson says he is loath to have Huysmans leave London, Huysmans himself informed me last night that he would go to the United States without fail.
