The Chargé in the Netherlands ( Gunther ) to the Secretary of State


7061. Confidential. Your 3724, December 13. Neither French nor British Ministers have information concerning any request about to be made for ex-Emperor’s surrender. This I have learned since my 7047 December 7. In my presence not long ago the new French Minister, M. Benoist, asserted that Clemenceau had hinted his indifference towards the entire matter when bidding him adieu some weeks ago.
