Mr. D. H. Miller to Colonel E. M. House

Following for you from Wiseman (Starts) I understand Balfour has telegraphed you suggesting that it would help him if you would intimate that the President would be glad for Reading to be in Paris during peace discussions. Owing to political difficulties I do not think Reading can be a delegate, but believe he will accept the position of High Commissioner on Anglo-American affairs, but Balfour thinks there will be opposition even to that appointment.
