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

1808. Referring to your telegram 1546, October 9, 2 p.m., Bourgeois officially requests the United States Government to suggest the name of an American citizen to be appointed by him, as president of the Council of League of Nations, to the Aaland Commission. His request was presented orally, other powers concerned were approached in the same manner.

The commission met today and began its preliminary studies of the question. Commission will probably leave Paris at the end of the month.
