The Secretary of State to the Ambassador in the United Kingdom ( Kennedy )
Washington , October 23, 1939—3 p.m.
1275. Your 1858, September 28. Commercial attaché at Brussels advises in economic trade note no. 59 that shipments from Antwerp are delayed because of strictness with which British authorities are scrutinizing certificates of origin which are required in both transit and domestic goods leaving Belgian ports. Can you reconcile that report with contents of your above-mentioned telegram of September 28.
