The Secretary of State to the Minister in Switzerland ( Stovall)
1695. Your 2769, March 4, 2 p.m.,2 and 2919, March 22, 6 p.m.3 The Department has no message to give to Bulgaria other than that already clearly expressed by the President in his various public utterances. Herron would be justified in informing Shipkoff it is his opinion that this Government would welcome any steps that may be taken by Bulgaria in good faith towards meeting the President’s views. It is obvious that if Bulgaria desires to take joint action with Austria in efforts towards peace, such cooperation should be initiated directly with Austria, not through the medium of the United States.
