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



I saw MacDonald and Butler last night after they and the Prime Minister were in a conference with Weizmann, Wise and others on the Jewish situation. MacDonald felt that the conference might be resumed and they were considering questions of delay in order to save themselves from one more critical situation at home and abroad. They have never discussed any detail of the plan with me beyond what is reported in my 276, February 27, 8 p.m.

MacDonald feels that he has an impossible situation and will try to make a decision involving the least trouble for the British Government.
