123 Biddle Anthony J. D./178: Telegram

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

1088. For Biddle. The President and I feel that for the present at least it would be preferable for you to remain in France, lest a feeling should arise that we have lost interest in or lost contact with Poland. With the present situation as unclarified as it is I think it would be best for you to decline interviews, press statements, et cetera, and in general to avoid any sort of commitment vis-à-vis newly appointed or selected polish officials until you and I have had a chance to exchange telegrams on the subject. Please report on plans of other neutral governments for continuing relationship with Polish Government.
