The Secretary of State to the Deputy Ambassador in France (Biddle), at Bordeaux

34. Your 68, June 22, 11 a.m. Your designation as representative near the French Government was special and for the emergency period during the time the French Government was separated from the capital by military necessity. The President now desires that you proceed to Bilbao or some other point in Spain until such time as you may find it possible to arrange safe transportation to England in order to resume your post near the Polish Government.

We will telegraph later instructions regarding the staff.
