Memorandum by the Secretary of State

The British Ambassador, accompanied by Sir Frederick Leith-Ross, called for the purpose of carrying out a pre-arranged appointment for the exchange of communications between the United States Government and the British Government relative to the intergovernmental debt negotiations. The British Ambassador accordingly handed me a note, bearing date of November 6th, from His Majesty’s Government, annexed hereto, and I at the same time handed him a note in behalf of the American Government.35

It has also been pre-arranged that at 10:30 a.m., tomorrow, November 7th, the White House will give out a press statement, which has been agreed upon between the representatives of the two governments, which will at the same time be given out in London.
