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

2029. Referring to my 2015, December 16. I have received from Mr. Leygues in answer to my communication of 14th instant advising him of date set for publication of boundary decision, a note stating in part as follows:

“Inasmuch as the chiefs of the Governments of the Principal Allied Powers have not to this day had the opportunity of considering together President Wilson’s decision I have the honor to beg Your Excellency kindly to request the Department of State to examine whether in its opinion it would not be advisable to defer the publication of the decision until the meeting of the Heads of Governments which in fact will take place shortly.”

I have made informal inquiry as to when the meeting of the Supreme Council will be held but date apparently is as yet undetermined.
