The Chargé in Hungary (Travers) to the Secretary of State

173. Conditions in Hungary calm and no great military movements visible. The Chief of the Political Section of the Foreign Office reiterated tonight to me that Hungary’s hands are still free and that Hungary will never fight Poland. He envisages Hungary maintaining neutrality for some time to come and said it is probable that a strict censorship will soon be imposed in order to assist in maintaining that neutrality.
