Memorandum by the Secretary of State of a Conversation With the Rumanian Minister (Davila)

During the call of the Rumanian Minister today he asked me about the Danubian matter. I told him I had talked it over with Tardieu and Beneš and several others. The Minister said he thought it was important to get Germany in; that Germany needed the help of the rest and they needed Germany; that originally it had been proposed as a Danubian affair, but he had begun to think that the interest of Germany would be important.
