It cannot be yet officially stated that the Belgians will accept the proposal but Foreign Office says there is every reason to believe they will. It will be very much appreciated by the Foreign Office if the Department can telegraph immediately how soon after the invitations are issued the American delegation can arrive. If the Belgians are to issue the invitation they desire to name a specific date.99
