The Chargé in Germany (Gordon) to the Secretary of State

49. My 47, March 25, 3 p.m. I spoke with several chiefs of mission last night who took occasion to express their opinion that outside intercession under the present circumstances would be very unwise.

Jewish owned Berliner Tageblatt has lined up with Frankfurter Zeitung in attitude reported in my telegram under reference.

Probably needless to say but I trust the allusion in yesterday’s telegram to forthcoming interview of leading industrialist with Hitler will be treated in the strictest confidence.
