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


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.
