The Head of the Swiss Delegation (Rappard) to the Heads of the American, French, and British Trade Delegations (Currie, Charquéraud, and Foot)

Gentlemen: Reference is made to the exchange of letters resulting from negotiations just concluded between the American, British and [Page 792] French Government[s] and the Government of Switzerland, and in particular to the letters relating to the financial problems discussed.

During the discussions consideration was given to the desirability of immediately extending the Swiss blocking measures to the assets of Finland, Bulgaria, Rumania and Japan. However, it was felt by all parties concerned, that the decisions to take such action depended upon certain considerations of which you are aware. This is to affirm Switzerland’s decisions to extend the blocking and census provisions to the aforementioned countries at the appropriate time.

Yours sincerely,
