The Secretary of State to the Ambassador in France (Wallace)


9279. Polk has been informed that the President agrees to your sitting on the Supreme Council on behalf of the United States as an observer and not as a participant. I desire, in this connection, that you take no action and express no opinion on any subjects discussed by that body but that you report the proceedings to the Department and await instructions on any point on which an expression of the views of this Government is desired.

You are authorized to sign the Hungarian and the Roumanian minority treaties on behalf of United States. Plenipotentiary credentials will be immediately mailed to you.
