The United States Delegation to the Department of State


Secto 329. Repeated information Paris 347, Moscow 92. French tell us that nothing of interest or substance transpired at Bidault’s dinner for Molotov last night and that neither principal made any effort to raise serious subject. Russians arrived at 8:40 and left at 10:30. Molotov was described as genial and mellow and conversation as vague and general. Laloy remarked that Molotov was in same relaxed mood that he had first observed at Berlin. French thought that Molotov had given slight indication growing impatience at length of Geneva sojourn.
