260 Mr S.M. Bruce, High Commissioner in London, to Mr R.G. Menzies, Prime Minister
Cablegram 520 (extract) LONDON, 3 October 1939, 6.32 p.m.
FOR PRIME MINISTER MOST SECRET
General reaction to Prime Minister's statement favourable.  More important in my view is statement that will be made if and when definite peace proposals are put forward. Am continuing pressure to ensure preparation of replies to meet alternative forms of proposals and am assured that they are well advanced.
