The Acting Secretary of State to the Ambassador in Great Britain (Davis)9


259. Your February 27, 11 a.m., no. 336.

It is not the desire of the Department that you should take the initiative in offering any information regarding the position of the American Government on this subject. Should you be questioned, however, in regard to forwarding any invitation to a citizen of the United States to become a member of a commission of this kind, you may say that the Department would not approve of such action because the Department does not consider that it would be wise to have the United States represented on such a commission even though representation were unofficial.

  1. Repeated Mar. 13, noon, to the Ambassador in France for his information.
