Memorandum by the Under Secretary of State (Welles) to the Chief of the Division of the American Republics (Bonsal)

Mr. Bonsal: I still feel that the policy which we are pursuing is the most expedient under present circumstances, and the one best calculated to produce satisfactory results. For the time being, at least, I do not propose making any statement in the press conference for public consumption. I am, however, having a conference tomorrow with the press during which I will speak quite frankly off the record and for background.
