The Ambassador in Belgium (Cudahy) to the Secretary of State

60. The Secretary-General of the Foreign Office has expressed interest in the memorandum on economic matters handed on March 9 by [Page 17] Under Secretary Welles to the French Minister of Finance. He inquired whether Mr. Welles has delivered a similar memorandum to the appropriate officials of the other Governments he has visited and whether it will be sent to the Governments of other states. I informed him that the Embassy had received no instructions from the Department on this matter and that I was therefore unable to supply him with this information. He inquired whether it would be possible to obtain it. If the Department perceives no objection I should appreciate receiving such information as it may be considered desirable to furnish the Belgian Government.
