Paris Peace Conf. 855.51/3
The Secretary of State to President Wilson
My Dear Mr. President: I received the enclosed letter of January 11th from Mr. Crosby28 relative to certain requests for loans which had come to him in regard to the expansion of the military establishment of Belgium.
As it appeared to be chiefly a matter as to which General Bliss’ advice would be most valuable I submitted it to him and have received the enclosed letter of the 13th on the subject.29
If it meets with your approval I purpose to answer Mr. Crosby accordingly. At the same time I would direct your attention to the last paragraph of the letter as a matter which should be given careful consideration.
