No. 350 : M. LÉON NÖEL, French Ambassador in Warsaw, to M. Georges Bonnet. Minister for Foreign Affairs. Warsaw. September 2. 1939. 12 noon.

(Received at 2.50 p.m.)

IN reply to President Roosevelt's initiative, the German Government has, through the good offices of the Netherlands, sent a note to the Polish Government, informing it that Herr Hitler had given orders to confine the bombing from the air to military objectives.

The Polish Government, through the same channel, replied that it had given identical orders, that it was adhering to them in spite of cases of bombing which had made many victims among the Polish civilian population, but that it was reserving to itself the right to retaliate, if this happened again.
