The Ambassador in the United Kingdom (Kennedy) to the Secretary of State

1659. Department’s 949, September 13, 9 p.m. Stanley reiterates contents of my 1620, September 13, 1 p.m. and points out that it is not that they do not want to buy tobacco from us but that they just have to conserve their exchange for things they need now, not 3 years from now. My own impression is that if they can resume tobacco purchases they will, but at present I see very little hope.
