The British Chargé ( Chilton ) to the Secretary of State

No. 896

My Dear Mr. Secretary: I did not fail to communicate to His Majesty’s Government the contents of the aide-mémoire enclosed in the letter which you were so good as to address to me on the 15th instant, and I now have the honour, under instructions from His Majesty’s Principal Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, to convey to the United States Government an expression of the gratification experienced by His Majesty’s Government in learning of their friendly disposition and willingness to help in finding a solution of the present difficult problems.

I am instructed to add that my Government are losing no time in ascertaining whether their principal Allies would be prepared to address to the United States Government an invitation to participate in one or other of the suggested forms of enquiry. I shall not fail to inform you in due course of the result of these enquiries.

Believe me [etc.]

H. G. Chilton
