The Secretary of State to the Ambassador in Spain (Laughlin)

102. Your telegram No. 90, November 23, 5 p.m. Your representations approved.

As the press will probably be making inquiries very soon we are considering whether it would be helpful to give out the text of your note, together with a brief descriptive statement designed to emphasize the gravity with which we view the situation. We shall not do so however until we have received a further report commenting upon the effect of your communication on the Spanish Government and containing your recommendations as to publicity.

We anticipate discussing developments with Page tomorrow morning.
