The Secretary of State to the Ambassador in Great Britain (Kellogg)

74. Your 67, February 14, 10 a.m. Please ascertain if possible what basis Chamberlain has for believing that France would join in conference for further limitation of naval armament with intention to effect limitation of auxiliary craft. Is there ground for believing that France has changed her position since Washington Conference and if not how is that position to be met in order to avoid recurrence of deadlock between France and Great Britain? It may be possible for you to obtain confidential information on this point before leaving.12
