The Special Representative ( House ) to the Secretary of State
[Received November 25—6:23 p.m.]
172. Secret for the President. My number 126, your number 59 and my number 159.28 I have received no definite assurances respecting number of delegates, but I now feel satisfied from informal expression which I have received from both French and British authorities that there will be no objection to the number being fixed. Accordingly, I modify my suggestion contained in my number 126 that no announcement be made concerning our delegation until arbitrators are committed to a definite number. I now see no reason why you should not make whatever announcement you have in mind respecting our delegates.
