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


From Root. If draft cabled you yesterday is approved by President, the moment seems appropriate for it to be officially transmitted to Secretary-General for the information of Council of the League of Nations in its capacity of representative of the signatory states, as being one suggestion of possible basis for a working agreement. Under the fifth reservation there will probably be approval in principle of amendments and then their reference to Committee of Experts for working out of details. May I have authority? [Root.]
