No. 300 :
M. Coulondre, French Ambassador in Berlin, to M. Georges Bonnet, Minister for Foreign Affairs. Berlin, August 30, 1939.

(Received by telephone at 130 p.m.)

THE text of the German reply which was delivered yesterday to Sir Nevile Henderson has just been communicated to me by the British Embassy.

It is brutal and reads more like a Diktat imposed upon a conquered country than an agreement to negotiate with a sovereign State.

Even if the conversations should be broken off almost as soon as begun, I nevertheless consider that Poland should, at least, to start with, agree to open them through the intermediary of her Ambassador in Berlin.
