Memorandum of Conversation, by the Secretary of State

The British Ambassador called at his request. He brought up the matter as to whether this Government desires to move forward very soon with general economic conferences, et cetera. I replied that there were strong reasons being advanced from the world standpoint for early conferences between us and the British in particular and others along with them, and that the matter is under consideration now, and that the Treasury will be ready to join with us in giving the British private information as to our attitude very soon. The Ambassador said he especially desired to be informed as soon as we are able to do so. I said we would do this.
