File No. 763.72119/1955

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

[Telegram]

2132. Your 4586 and 4587, September 27. [The President appreciates the confidence reposed in him and is willing to urge an armistice upon the Entente if the Bulgarian Government will authorize him to say that the conditions of the armistice are left to him for decision and that the Bulgarian Government will accept the conditions which he imposes.]

Otherwise the President would not be hopeful of the result of mediation on his part at this juncture in so vital a matter.

If the above conditions are accepted you may transmit to Department the text of the telegram from Malinoff, Bulgarian Premier, to the Bulgarian Minister at Washington.
