The Consul at Geneva (Bucknell) to the Secretary of State
[Received November 10—3:32 a.m.]
364. Department’s telegram 159, November 8, 7 p.m.37 Stoppani himself suggested and I agree that Grady’s attendance next meeting not essential, particularly as a more important meeting will be held in February. Discussion at December meeting38 will mainly be concerned with raw materials. See despatch 73 Political October 30.37
Stoppani is anxious, however, that an American expert be present and hopes that Grady will designate a substitute. Because of the expense preferable but not essential that some one already in Europe be appointed.
