The British Ambassador (Halifax) to the Under Secretary of State (Welles)

My Dear Welles: I have now had from the Foreign Office a reply to the telegram which I sent them as a result of your letter of July 2nd about the appointment of an American Foreign Service Officer to reside at Delhi or Simla. The Foreign Office inform me that the Government of India gladly agrees to the American representative being styled “Commissioner”, as suggested in your letter. I hope therefore that we shall be able to agree on a simultaneous announcement of the two appointments shortly.

Very sincerely yours,
