The Consul at Geneva (Bucknell) to the Secretary of State

190. From Everett. Department’s 105, September 11, 1 p.m. The conference concluded its work yesterday. It adopted a procès-verbal and a final act. The essential provisions of the procès-verbal are the same as those of the draft protocol. It may be signed on behalf of governments which have either signed or adhered to the original convention. I shall not sign these instruments however until the Department has had an opportunity to examine them. Final corrected copies will be mailed as soon as available. The British delegate announced he would be unable to sign at present because British law required Parliamentary sanction. [Everett.]
