The Minister in Poland ( Gibson ) to the Secretary of State

119. Department’s 50, June 20, 3 p.m. Unless Department specifically desires reply made to Foreign Office, consider preferable to leave Polish note unanswered pending further developments in view of past handling of the case. Reply suggested by Shipping Board would probably be interpreted as tacit acceptance of Polish point of view and would render more difficult any attempt to raise question again in the future.
