No. 91. Attention of Woolley for Baruch. As a result of conference with Loucheur, Minister of Munitions, today, they state they will make no definite decision in connection with your proposal at present for the reason that the Minister of Munitions intends sending immediately a commission to Washington for the purpose of discussing with you all subjects relating to munitions, including distribution of raw materials. Therefore, before making definite decision, they prefer to await arrival and the receipt of recommendations and report of commission. McFadden.
