The Chargé in the Netherlands ( Bliss) to the Secretary of State

[Telegram]

4585. Just received from Bulgarian Minister here [note transmitted] in my 4586, September 27, 1 a.m. I am not handing a [Page 322]copy of the note to the British Legation here but am communicating it to the Department for such action as it may consider appropriate. However, in order to gain time, should the Department desire to take immediate action with the British Government in the matter, I am forwarding the text in my cipher telegram No. 6202 to the American Ambassador at London to be kept entirely secret pending instructions from the Department.
