No. 311
The Representative in Hungary (Schoenfeld) to the Acting Secretary of State 1

281. Key informed me he received yesterday note from Voroshilov dated July 11 and setting forth “decision” of Soviet Govt regarding revised procedure of ACC.2 So far as could be gathered from preliminary translation procedure is substantially along lines indicated in Dept’s 57 May 283 with supplementary details as worked out by American representation ACC. However, there is considerable ambiguity in Voroshilov’s statement and Key proposes to discuss matter with him as soon as possible.

Sent Dept repeated to Moscow as Nr 23 and London as Nr [blank.]
