The Commission to Negotiate Peace to the Secretary of State


5071. Do you authorize me to give servants of Crillon Hotel 30 days’ notice? Shall I proceed on the theory that on or about December 1 all of Mission and personnel will return home, thereby closing Crillon? I am planning to move the reparation people to other quarters and also the members of the personnel which is to go to Embassy out of hotel by November 20. Please give me your views regarding the return of Bliss and White. Polk.
