The Secretary of State to the Ambassador in Belgium (Phillips)

[Paraphrase]

39. Your No. 70, June 5, 10 p.m. The Belgian reply is satisfactory except that it does not cover sending of a mission (see last paragraph [Page 121]memorandum Department’s No. 35, June 3, 7 p.m.). If the Belgian Government gives you written assurance that it will send a mission in July to negotiate a settlement, you may state that the Government of the United States considers Belgium’s assurances satisfactory. Immediate answer is desired so that we can notify Morgan and Company on Monday.
