The Ambassador in the Soviet Union ( Steinhardt ) to the Secretary of State

752. My telegram No. 741, October 13, 5 p.m. After two meetings in the Kremlin yesterday afternoon and evening, the Finnish representatives and the Finnish Minister to Moscow left at midnight by train for Helsinki. It is believed that they are returning for consultation and are expected in Moscow within a few days. The Moscow press this morning makes no reference to the foregoing.

Repeated to Helsinki.

Steinhardt
