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

WASHINGTON, August 6, 1941-3 a m.

2984. Personal for the Ambassador. Following is the President's reply to your No. 3428, August 5, 10 p. m.:

"Think highly inadvisable make any statement at this time. In my judgement all that need be said is that Prime Minister is on short vacation. References to accompanying officers especially bad. Any statement now is direct invitation to Germans to attack him and his party going and returning. When in doubt say nothing. Roosevelt."
