Cablegram unnumbered SS DOMINION MONARCH, 24 December 1948
Please pass urgently to Hodgson.  Begins. How do you explain resolution which, as far as I can see, merely stabilizes position at a point which recognizes and provisionally confirms success of the Dutch aggression? I have asked you to report developments, but all I have are long and belated accounts of speeches without significant comment. What action do you now propose? Please reply immediately. Ends.
