The Secretary of State to the Commission to Negotiate Peace
3941. Confidential for Polk.
Your 5517, December 1, 10 A.M.14
The President sees no serious objection to delaying your departure until the 9th but desires that all the Commissioners leave Paris on that date without fail. I assume that Connor will be able to make all arrangements which may be necessary as a result of this slight alteration in schedule. This is final.
