157 Mr S.M. Bruce, High Commissioner in London, to Mr R.G. Menzies, Prime Minister
Cablegram 360  LONDON, 27 August 1939
FOR THE PRIME MINISTER MOST SECRET
Cabinet did not meet till 3.30 and sat till 6 and adjourned till tomorrow morning. Henderson's  return postponed till tomorrow afternoon. This decision deliberately arrived at, and for your information and MOST CONFIDENTIAL this due to influences moving both in Berlin and Rome which desirable should have time to work before United Kingdom reply received. Draft reply continued today, and I gather Cabinet united on general lines which from my information appear satisfactory.
Your cable most helpful.
