The First Secretary of the British Embassy ( Hayter ) to Mr. George L. Brandt, Executive Assistant to the Assistant Secretary of State ( Long )

Dear Mr. Brandt: I enclose an official note17 conveying an invitation from the Government of Bermuda to the United States Delegation to the Refugee Conference to be their guests during the Conference. A similar invitation has been sent to the British Delegation. I understand that this invitation covers the meeting, the cost of accommodation and inland transportation, and that the Bermuda Government have booked accommodation at a hotel which the Delegates will have to themselves and where they will be able to have their meetings. We should be glad if you would let us know as soon as possible how you feel about this, so that we could inform the Bermuda Government. We naturally hope that you will accept this invitation; the British Delegation intends to do so. I take this opportunity of giving you the full list of the British Delegation. It is as follows:

  • Delegates
    • The Right Honourable Richard Law, P. C., M.P., Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs.
    • Mr. Osbert Peake, M.P., Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State of the Home Office.
    • Mr. George Hall, M.P., Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the Admiralty.
  • Experts
    • Sir Bernard Reilly, Colonial Office
    • Sir Frank Newsam, Home Office
    • Mr. Randall, Foreign Office
    • Mr. Picknett, Ministry of War Transport
    • Mr. Hayter, British Embassy in Washington.

Yours sincerely,

W. G. Hayter
