The Commissioner at Budapest ( Grant-Smith ) to the Secretary of State
[Received August 5—3:35 p.m.]
308. Please telegraph via Embassy Paris phraseology preferred for proposed treaty giving alternative wordings in order of preference. The Hungarians will aim to have it so phrased that the United States will recognize herself subject to the same limitations and bound by the same obligations in regard to rights, privileges, indemnities, reparations, advantages, as those signatories who have ratified the Trianon Treaty. Hoping to profit by our mollifying influence they desire evidently to draw us into full participation in obligations including mechanism of enforcement.
