Memorandum by the Chief of the Division of Western European Affairs (Moffat) of a Conversation With the British Ambassador (Lindsay)

The British Ambassador came in this morning to renew his protest against the Seaman’s Bill (King-Dies Bill) now under consideration at the capitol. He said that he had expressed so fully and so forcibly the objections of his Government to the inequities of this legislation in years past that he did not feel that it was incumbent on him to go over the same arguments a second time. Nevertheless, he wished to make it a matter of record that the objections of the British Government expressed in earlier years had in no degree abated.
