The Commissioner at Vienna (Frazier) to the Secretary of State

148. Referring to my number 145 Aug. 10, 9 a.m.3 The following communication received from Federal Chancellor this morning:

“The Federal Government is firmly resolved to consider the rights, interests and advantages derived from the Treaty of Saint Germain and especially from parts 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, and 14 of that Treaty, also as strictly for the benefit of the United States. It is evident that my foregoing assertion applies also to the participation of the U[nited] S[tates] in the Reparations Commission and in any other commission which may have been or may be established under the provisions of the Treaty of Saint Germain so far as the United States may desire to participate. The Federal Government, far from raising any objection, would welcome a participation of the United States in such commissions the more gladly as it confidently hopes that the United States’s taking an active part in the work of these bodies could only be for the sake of general peace and welfare.”
