The Secretary of State to the Ambassador in France (Edge)


455. Embassy’s 584, noon, 19th of September. You are to see Laval and to tell him that if the newspaper reports to which you have referred correctly indicate a sentiment in France favorable to a visit by him to the United States, you have authority to state that President Hoover would be most happy if the Prime Minister found it convenient to make this visit; and that the President is of the opinion that such an opportunity for a personal acquaintance and discussion would be of inestimable value.
