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

293. With reference to the Department’s No. 267 of April 18, noon, and our conversation this morning, both the President and I will be greatly interested in your report on the response of the British Government. In presenting the matter it is legitimate to mention the various fields in which we are doing something of interest to the British Government. A responsive attitude on their part with respect to the proposed commodity exchanges would command interest and attention on the part of the public here.
