The Chargé in Germany (Poole) to the Secretary of State


207. The situation regarding reparations remains essentially unchanged since my 198 of September 28.

At the German Foreign Office yesterday, in speaking to me, Schubert14 stressed the need of cautious preparation, but he intimated that in a fortnight a definite step was possible and emphasized the German Government’s great desire for American cooperation and the avoidance of any action disturbing or unacceptable to the United States Government. Schubert wishes me to let him know of anything in which due regard does not appear to be given to the American requirements.

As to American citizens taking part, he explained that his Government entertains the hope that the composition of the commission may resemble that of 1924 very closely.

  1. Dr. C. T. C. von Schubert, Secretary of State of the German Foreign Office.
