Memorandum of Conversation, by the Secretary of State

The Ambassador of France2 called at his request. He said that he desired this Government to urge the importance to the British of agreeable relations between the British and French Governments. I replied that while I would not make any commitments, but speaking individually there was no harm but, on the contrary, nothing but possible good could come from the preservation of friendly relations between the two governments at this time and that I would keep especially in mind what the Ambassador said.
