The Commission to Negotiate Peace to the Acting Secretary of State

278. For Secretary Glass from Colonel House. Your 163, January 9, 7 p.m. I have seen the President’s cable to you in answer to yours respecting Treasury representation. The general opinion among the Commissioners seems to be that at the present time it would not be wise to have a Treasury commission appointed. They may, however, change their views in the future. I personally believe you have made wise selections in Davis, Strauss and Lamont and I have no doubt they will act for you in a manner entirely satisfactory to you. Warmest regards.
