The Chargé in Belgium (Wilson) to the Secretary of State


208. From Berlin:

2166. November 29, 10 a.m. Your No. 827, November 3, 9 p.m.

The following report on political conditions in occupied Poland is submitted by Harrison following his return from Warsaw and will be expanded by dispatch.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . .

The reopening of the American Consulate General in Warsaw was universally received as a most welcome and encouraging manifestation of the old sympathy of the American people for Poland. People in all walks of life frankly stated that when the Americans came back it meant to them that Poland was not entirely forgotten by the outside world. The housing in the Chancery of the former Embassy of an adequate Consulate staffed with understanding officers is a most useful gesture if the policy pursued in the future towards Poland is to be one of sympathy and encouragement.”
