The Chairman of the American Delegation (Hull) to the Acting Secretary of State26

43. Your 59, December 9, 2 p.m. Please see my 30, December 6, 5 p.m., and last sentence my 35, December 7, 3 p.m. The sense of my statement on the question was as follows: that the question now arose as to whether

The Pan American Conference would continue its work as a separate organization for this hemisphere retaining the integrity of its organization and cooperating with states, organizations or agencies of other continents or of the world in such phases of their activities as might be useful; or
Such cooperation would be prosecuted by the interlocking of the Pan American organization with those states, organizations or agencies being cooperated with.

While this question was referred on my motion to a special committee suggested by me for determination, I clearly indicated that I personally favored keeping the separate identity of the Pan American organization.

Please repeat foregoing to Bern and Geneva.

  1. Substance repeated to the Minister in Switzerland as telegram No. 129, December 10, 8 p.m., in reply to his No. 218, December 9, noon, p. 170.
