Memorandum of Conversation, by Mr. William T. Phillips of the Commodities Division

Participants: Mr. R. Keith Jopson, Commercial Secretary, British Embassy
Mr. B. F. Haley, CD
Mr. W. T. Phillips, CD

On May 5 Mr. Haley and I called on Mr. Jopson at the British Embassy to discuss with him the cable which he proposed to dispatch to his Government outlining the state of our internal negotiations regarding the proposed rubber agreement.

A paraphrase of our cable to the American Embassy in London of May 5 (no. 3608)22 was read to Mr. Jopson to serve as a pattern for cable. Mr. Jopson then dictated a cable to his Government along the lines of our cable to our Embassy so that similar information would be available to both.
