S. Lester's comments in reply to A. Sweetser's letter about publicity made on the League of Nations: no mention about the difficulties S. Lester faced to maintain the League of Nations headquarters at Geneva and get enough money to carry on vital technical activities, no mention about the fact that the more efforts made for economies and they were tremendous, the more they demanded; for publicity two things are needed: one is work or results and the other is an adequate press service, but the second is absolutely useless without the former; no mention about the fact that nothing mattered that was not on the American continent; Welles' speech was almost the only public declaration by any statesman on the League of Nations; for governments the decline in activity and importance of the League of Nations was more striking than what had been kept and what had been done; S. Lester wished the Supervisory Commission to visit Geneva.
