The Secretary of State to the Minister in Poland ( Gibson )
54. Your 51, January 30, 6 p.m. This Government is not in a position at the present moment to take any responsibility in advising Poland to adopt a specific policy toward Bolshevist Russia. For your own information, however, I feel that it would be most unfortunate if the Polish Government should conclude from the silence of this Government in the matter that there is implied such military and economic assistance as might determine the Polish Government in refusing to enter into armistice negotiations with Bolshevist Russia.
