The Secretary of State to the Minister in Switzerland ( Stovall)


3095. For Garrett:

Your 12, September 28, 5 p.m. You may say to German delegates that you will undertake to lay before this Government the advisability of the United States Government suggesting to the Governments of Cuba and Panama that all German civilians be treated in accordance with such agreement as may be reached between the United States and Germany. In view of recent developments in Bulgaria and Turkey it is not considered advisable to concede that Germany has any influence in the future in connection with the rights of Americans in those countries. Any quid pro quo which it is thought desirable to demand in return for our suggestion to the Governments of Cuba and Panama should be along some other line.
