The Secretary General of the High Commission for Refugees (Jewish and Other) Coming From Germany (Wurfbain) to the Secretary of State6

Sir: I beg herewith to refer to my letter of March 22nd.,5a and to take the liberty of drawing your attention to the fact that the communications addressed by this office to your Government on February 6th. and 21st.,7 concerning especially the question of passports for refugees from Germany and that of the treatment of stateless refugees, have so far remained without answer on the part of the Government of the United States of America.

As the above-mentioned questions are again to figure on the agenda of the next meeting of the Governing Body of the High Commission, it would be highly appreciated by this office if your Government would [Page 305] kindly inform the High Commissioner before that meeting of the attitude it intends to adopt with regard to the afore-mentioned recommendations.

I have [etc.]
