No. 218 :
M. Georges Bonnet, Minister for Foreign Affairs, to M. ROGER CAMBON, French Chargé d'Affaires in London. Paris, August 24, 1939. 1.25 p.m.

THE French Government will make a most urgent démarche to the Polish Government to the effect that the latter should abstain from military action should the Senate of the Free City proclaim the return of Danzig to the Reich. It is indeed important that Poland should not take up the position of an aggressor, which might impede the entry into force of some of our pacts and would furthermore place the Polish Army in Danzig in a very dangerous position. The Warsaw Government would in such a case reserve its freedom to defend its rights by diplomatic action.

Georges Bonnet.
