Memorandum of Conversation, by the Under Secretary of State (Welles)
The Irish Minister called to see me this morning at my request.
I read to the Minister the aide-mémoire attached herewith but I did not give him a copy thereof. The Minister asked if it would not be possible for his Government to have made available to it the information in the files of the War Department since it was the sole desire of the Irish Government to prevent activities of the type complained of in the War Department’s publication and to eliminate any sources of danger to the forces of the United States. I told the Minister that I would be very glad to talk this over with the War Department to see if they desired to designate a military officer to discuss the question with the Irish Minister.
