The Minister in Norway ( Harriman ) to the Secretary of State

19. My 18, April 22, 1 p.m.38 Foreign Office informs me that the Foreign Minister replied orally in the negative to the German Minister’s questions whether Norway felt itself threatened by Germany and whether the Norwegian Government had “authorized” or in other way had occasioned the President’s message but that the Foreign Minister had added that obviously Norwegians, Norway knew, would be in danger if there were a general war and that therefore Norway was putting its neutrality guard in readiness.
