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.
