The Secretary of State to the Ambassador in France (Wallace)
8. For Dresel from Polk.
Embassy’s 2, January l.15 Unless there is some objection Department does not know there is no reason now why you should not go to Berlin as soon as ratifications are deposited and protocol signed. I should judge that the British and French could make no objection to your then going. I have felt that in view of the fact we had not ratified and were taking such a little part in the proceedings we should do what we could not to unnecessarily irritate them. Cable Department when you are ready to go.
