No. 251 :
M. DE DAMPIERRE, French Minister in Ottawa, to M. Georges Bonnet, Minister for Foreign Affairs. Ottawa, August 26, 1939. 12 a.m.

(Received at 10 p.m.)

THIS morning the Prime Minister addressed an appeal, through the German, Italian and Polish Consuls at Ottawa, to Herr Hitler and Signor Mussolini, as well as to the President of the Polish Republic. The messages intended for Warsaw and Berlin are couched in identical terms. The Havas Agency is telegraphing the full text of these documents.

The Governor-General has told me that he approves of this initiative and that it would have a considerable repercussion upon Canadian public opinion.
