The Acting Secretary of State to the British Chargé (Osborne)
Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your note No, 238 and, as enclosures thereto, your note No. 239 and the note of the Honorable Ramsay MacDonald, dated July 13, 1932, inviting the Government of the United States to be represented on the Committee charged with the task of convoking the Conference on Monetary and Economic Questions, and to appoint two experts to sit on the Committee charged with the preliminary examination of these questions.
I have noted your statement of the understanding as to topics on which the invitation is extended.
In reply I have the honor to accept the invitations thus extended. When information as to the time and place of meeting of the organizing committee for the Conference has been received, the Government of the United States will be glad to designate a representative on this committee. This Government will also proceed, as soon as occasion arises, with the appointment of experts to the preparatory committee.
