Please deliver to the President the following message in the 
      name of His Majesty's Government:
"His Majesty's Government welcome the weighty and moving 
      appeal of the President of the United States against the bombardment 
      from the air of civilian populations or of unfortified cities. 
      Deeply impressed by the humanitarian considerations to which 
      the President's message refers. It was already the settled policy 
      of His Majesty's Government should they become involved in hostilities 
      to refrain from such action and to confine bombardment to strictly 
      military objectives upon the understanding that those same rules 
      will be scrupulously observed by all their opponents. They had 
      already concerted in detail with certain other governments the 
      rules that in such an event they would impose upon themselves 
      and make publicly known."
