Paris Peace Conf. 874.00/16: Telegram

The Chargé in Bulgaria ( Wilson ) to the Ambassador in France ( Sharp )

6. The Prime Minister called on me yesterday to request that I convey to the President of the United States, in the name of the Government of Bulgaria, and its people, congratulations upon his arrival in Europe. He said further that this was to Bulgaria an event of prime importance as Bulgaria looked to the President of the United States to save Bulgaria from annihilation: He also renewed request already made several times that Mr. Cueshobeluga [Gueshov?], former Minister Paris, Berlin, Constantinople, and Mr. Vladimartzanoff, graduate of Harvard, and former Associated Press correspondent at Petrograd, and officer in both Balkan and late wars, who is now attached to Ministry of War, be allowed to proceed to Paris to lay Bulgarian cause unofficially before the President of the United States, and the American peace delegation. Similar requests have been made to British and French Governments to send two other prominent Bulgarians to each of these countries. Kindly repeat to Department.
