Paris Peace Conf. 185.161/3: Telegram

The Secretary of State to the Acting Secretary of State

24. Your 33, December 16, to Ammission. You will say very confidentially to Mr. Gompers that the President’s views were that a labor conference might very properly be held in Paris or in any other place at any time that the leaders of labor deemed it wise; that is, he believed that they should feel entirely free to do what they conceived best. Please inform Gompers that this, of course, is for his own information and not for general use.
