My 331, February 7, 7 p.m., and Berlin’s 46, February 2, 9 a.m., to London.3a It appears that the proposals contained in the Department’s telegram 1107, September 29, 5 p.m.,4 concerning the treatment of civilian enemy aliens are now being given practical effect by the British and German Governments except as concerned able-bodied men of military age.
