The Minister in Switzerland (Wilson) to the Secretary of State

195. My 177, May 10, 5 p.m., paragraph 4.

A somewhat lengthy and technical report by the Secretariat was circulated yesterday. A copy has been forwarded to the Department60 and one furnished to Fuller,61 who is leaving for Washington this morning. I only had the opportunity for a brief [Page 351] communication with him before his departure and, therefore, do not feel in a position to comment in detail on the report which Fuller can divulge to better advantage on his return to the Department. I got the impression from Fuller, however, that he considered the report “tricky and full of dynamite”.
I shall take no part in the discussion of the report at the meeting of the subcommittee set for tomorrow morning, June 2.

  2. Stuart J. Fuller, Assistant Chief, Division of Far Eastern Affairs, Department of State; representative in expert and advisory capacity, League of Nations Advisory Committee on Traffic in Opium and Other Dangerous Drugs, Geneva.
