740.0011 European War 1939/5334: Telegram
The Consul at Leopoldville (Mallon) to the Secretary of State
[Received August 30—10:40 a.m.]
Referring to my telegram of August 28 De Larminat appointed High Commissioner of France Libre for French Equatorial Africa and Cameroon. Coup d’état effected without bloodshed. Husson roughly handled but unhurt, expects to leave Leopoldville for Dakar as soon as possible. Should I call officially on De Larminat?
