The Secretary of State to the Minister in Switzerland ( Wilson )
88. Reference your telegram No. 60, August 17, 2 p.m. Method proposed by Sir Eric Drummond of treating message contained in my telegram No. 84, August 14, 11 a.m., relative to the Permanent Court is entirely satisfactory. You might inform Sir Eric that we do not intend at present to make any announcement of matter here; and that last evening and this morning a statement carried by the United Press with reference to this Administration’s attitude toward the Permanent Court was a pure guess and not based upon information from the Department of State or elsewhere.
