The Secretary of State to the Ambassador in Mexico (Daniels)

No. 820

Sir: The Department has received your despatch No. 2764 of July 25, 1935, entitled “Possible Inter-American Peace Conference”.

In general, the information conveyed to you on this subject by the Acting Secretary of Foreign Relations is accurate. The matter is [Page 2] however, still in the formative stage of development and it is, of course, highly desirable that the President’s intentions should not receive any premature publicity. Pending further instructions from the Department, you are requested to make no comment whatever regarding this subject and to treat it as completely and entirely confidential.

Very truly yours,

For the Secretary of State:
Sumner Welles
