The Ambassador to the Polish Government in Exile ( Biddle ) to the Secretary of State

Polish Series 54. Polish Government at instance of Allied Governments established in London has again approached me regarding participation in conference described in my 44, November 26, 2 p.m. They now propose holding meeting in late December5 and express hope that in view of changed international situation American representatives to Allied Governments may take part “in same capacity as the representatives of Great Britain, Soviet Russia and China, i. e., as their guest, not as actual participant.”

I understand British Government is prepared to be represented but neither U. S. S. R. nor China has yet accepted.

I have indicated doubt as to advisability of our participation but request instructions.

  1. The date of the meeting was finally fixed for January 13, 1942.
