No. 332 :
M. Francois-Poncet. French Ambassador in Rome, to M. Georges Bonnet, Minister for Foreign Affairs. Rome, September 1, 1939. 2.30 p.m.

(Received at 430 p.m.)

THE French Government's reply to the Italian suggestion for the calling of a conference was delivered by me today at 12.45 p.m. to Count Ciano.

The French Government's reply was manifestly gratifying to Count Ciano; he told me that he was very pleased with it and thanked me. He nevertheless added that he was not in a position to tell me whether the Italian proposal could still serve any purpose and whether it could be sent to Herr Hitler.
