The Ambassador in Great Britain (Davis) to the Secretary of State

1055. I delivered on yesterday to the Secretary of the League of Nations the President’s summons for the first meeting of the Assembly which crossed the communication from the Council sent as my telegram number 1050, July 12, 8 p.m.8 The Secretary will withhold the issuance of the notification until the President has had an opportunity to consider my 1050. My attention is called to the fact that the President’s summons [states] it is [sent] “complying with the request of the Council of the League of Nations.” In view of the wish of the Council to meet at Brussels should not this phrase be modified or eliminated if Geneva is adhered to? Otherwise Council of League may feel called upon to issue statement of its prior attitude.
