The Secretary of State to the Consul at Geneva (Gilbert)
33. For Davis. Your 40, November 15th 3 P.M. The President is to confer with Mr. Roosevelt within near future as to Economic Conference. Suggest, if possible, postponing decision as to time of Conference until that meeting.[Page 837]
While appreciating certain advantages of delaying until April or May do not wish to decide yet definitely against early meeting which might be of benefit to the world and which apparently is much favored by British. Will wire further as soon as possible.
