[Received September 14—6:25 p.m.]
439. British Ambassador informs me that he conveyed this morning through the Foreign Office a suggestion that British Prime Minister Chamberlain visit Hitler to discuss Czechoslovak problem. Foreign Office telephoned Munich where Ribbentrop was with Hitler and Hitler extended invitation to come.
Chamberlain will leave London by plane tomorrow arriving Munich 11 a.m. thence to Berchtesgaden. He is prepared to spend several days if necessary to discuss this matter.
British Ambassador requests that this be kept scrupulously confidential until given out to the press.
