The Secretary of State to the Chargé in France (Harrison)


1374. Have instructed the Commissioner at Berlin to repeat his no. 945, August 9, 3 p.m., to you. It is in regard to conditions which [Page 389] might arise in Germany in case Allies should try to send troops or arms to Poland across Germany.

Acquaint Foreign Office informally with views expressed in that telegram as information of a reliable character which has come to this Government as to the possible results if such action is taken. Also tell the Foreign Office that if the Allies should consider such action, this Government hopes to receive information in advance. You should keep Department closely informed as to the trends of French policy regarding sending supplies or military assistance to Poland and also any German efforts to nullify peace treaty provisions as to Germany’s eastern boundaries.
