The American Delegate (Wilson) to the Secretary of State
[Received October 3—12:55 p.m.]
394. From Davis. Since dictating number 393, October 3, 2 p.m., Simon’s secretary has read me a message which Simon is sending to Vansittart in London instructing him to propose the conversations in London as within the framework of the Disarmament Conference and as a continuance of those conversations initiated by yourself at Bessinge.
Such procedure, according to Simon’s thought, has the additional advantage of having present in the conversations both MacDonald and Grandi who participated at Bessinge. [Davis.]
