the minister for foreign affairs, Del
Caese, that the joint session that was to

. Later a eemi-cfficial note was issued
saying the commissioners had informed
the French minister of foreign affairs
that their conferences were suspended.

fact that the, failure to hold a meeting
of the commissioners was only due to
Americans asking for a postponement
of the joint session until tomorrow ; In

that certain portions of the report may
