The Acting Secretary of State to the Ambassador in the United Kingdom (Winant)

305. The agreement proposed by the Swedish Government regarding exports to Denmark and Norway which is outlined in Stockholm’s 136, January 12 (repeated to London as its 46) is acceptable to this Government. If the British likewise approve, it is proposed that the British and American Ministers at Stockholm be requested so to inform the Swedes.

In view of the above, this Government desires that you withdraw the request contained in the Department’s 100, January 4, 10 p.m. (Department’s 23 to Stockholm) relative to the detention of the Falsterbohus and the removal of part of her cargo.

Repeated to Stockholm as Department’s 71.
