The Ambassador in France (Bullitt) to the Secretary of State

1844. Your circular September 4, 2 p.m. Competent French military authorities have informed our Military Attaché that they are glad to authorize the officers on the staffs of our Military and Naval Attaches at Paris to inspect promptly by personal [apparent omission] the scene of any bombing of a non-military objective in France. (According to the staff officer with whom Military Attaché talked, General Gamelin had endorsed “tres bien” on this order.)
