The Secretary of State to the Ambassador in Great Britain (Harvey)
288. Your telegrams 407 and 409.10
In order to inform Department promptly and accurately you may attend deliberations of Supreme Council. In boundary questions that are merely of European significance the Department does not wish to involve itself. But recognizing the serious and world-wide consequences that may follow this controversy, we earnestly hope for a peaceful solution and a cessation of the present disorders. You may be able, without undertaking for this Government any action violative of its traditional policy, to contribute through your presence to a settlement, although acting informally as an observer.
