The Consul at Geneva (Tuck) to the Secretary of State

Referring to my telegram of January 22, 6 [7] p.m. The Department should not construe my second paragraph [sentence?] as meaning that countries named therein are to have two delegates. On the contrary, so far as known by Drummond, no country is sending more than one delegate with technical advisers. My reference to two delegates was meant to indicate that if the Department considered it desirable to appoint a substitute delegate this would not be so disproportionate as to cause resentment. Drummond reiterates his hope that our delegation would be restricted to approximately same limits as other powers.
