The Chairman of the American Delegation (Burton) to the Secretary of State

Dear Mr. Secretary: I am enclosing a writing signed by the three Delegates who did not join in the signature of the Treaties. This might assume considerable importance and I send it to you.

The Conference came to a close at three o’clock today and in reviewing what has been done, I think we have great reason for satisfaction in the results.

Very cordially yours,

Theodore E. Burton
