The Minister in Yugoslavia ( Lane ) to the Secretary of State

155. For the Under Secretary. I learn from a reliable source that Fotić who is one of the most highly regarded Yugoslav diplomatic representatives has been telegraphing fully his conversations with you and that these reports have had an excellent effect in fortifying attitude of high officials here. It has been suggested to me that the more ammunition you can give him the more efficacious the results will be here.

As I know that you are on close terms with Fotić I am not forwarding the foregoing as a suggestion, but merely for your information.

Lane
