The President of the Council of the League of Nations (De Valera) to the Chairman of the Commission of Neutrals (White)

I thank you your telegram November 5th. My colleagues, myself particularly, glad hear that direct negotiations under auspices your committee have begun and proceeding normally. At same time cannot but be seriously concerned at continuation of warlike action in Chaco in spite all efforts to contrary and trust that hostilities will now be suspended definitely and both parties will give formal assurances they will not proceed during such suspension to any military preparations or other action which might prejudice progress of negotiations. My committee will continue in session until Council meeting to which it must report on situation.

De Valera
