The Ambassador in Poland (Biddle) to the Secretary of State

46. In conference with the proper Government authorities I vigorously represented our position in relation to the Polish dollar bonds [Page 643] in the light of Department’s instructions contained in its cable number 11, April 6, 7 p.m. On Saturday April 9 Polish Government forwarded fresh instructions to Polish Financial Counsellor Zoltowski. I received assurances of Government’s earnest desire to reach some equitable arrangement in connection with the servicing of Polish dollar bonds as well as an assurance that by no later than the 13th I would receive a definite reply on all questions contained in Department’s cable.
