26 August, 1915

Foreign Relations of the United States: The Lansing Papers, I, 144.
President Woodrow Wilson to the Secretary of State, Mr. Robert Lansing.

My dear Mr. Secretary:

My opinion in this matter, compendiously stated, is that we should say that "Parties would take no action either for or against such a transaction," but that this should be orally conveyed, so far as we are concerned, and not put in writing.

I hope this is also your own judgment of the matter.

Faithfully yours,
