At the end of the meeting Grew stated that the questions under discussion were of particular interest to the United States, and that he desired to reserve the privilege of more detailed comment. Sir Horace Rumbold inquired as to the effect of this statement and desired to know when Grew would expect to make statements, as the conference could not delay its work. Grew replied that the American delegation had no intention of delaying the proceedings of the conference and that he simply desired to make reservation of the right to comment in later discussions, should he consider it desirable to do so.
