MOST IMMEDIATE SECRET
Your 180.  The date set that is the week beginning 26th is nothing less than a breach of faith. Your own telegram clearly indicates the second week in August (see your 198, paragraph 3(b)). When accepting the proposal, we did not contemplate such a late date in August, but were working on the proposal (b) set out by McNeil. South Africa['s] attendance is a matter of indifference. We have received a telegram from South Africa stating that they are not interested in the Pacific Settlement.
