The Secretary of State to the Chargé in the Netherlands ( Sussdorff )


48. Legation’s No. 64, July 13, 5 p.m. It is the hope of the Department that the non-Russian delegates are not contemplating inviting [Page 821] at this time the American Government to participate. In case you think that serious consideration is being given to extending such an invitation, you may express your opinion, in whatever places you deem desirable, that although this Government has followed the deliberations at The Hague with sympathy and interest, it does not consider that it would be either helpful or desirable to take part in the extension of these deliberations.
