The Ambassador in Great Britain ( Davis ) to the Secretary of State


1469. Your 4160, January 26 [20], 6 p.m. Foreign Office just informs me British military authorities are inclined to the opinion that it has now become unnecessary owing to the present military situation to proceed with the agreement referred to in the Department’s 4160 but requests that the views of the United States Government on this point may be obtained and adds that should it still desire the agreement to be proceeded with the British military authorities will readily submit a draft for the consideration of the Department.
