WAR DEPARTMENT 
OFFICE OF THE CHIEF OF STAFF
WASHINGTON

March 21, 1941

Major Germain Seligmann
5 East 57th Street, New York, N. Y.

Dear Seligmann:

Your letter of March 11, 1941, offering your services to the United States and summarizing your record in the French Army was received by me and turned over to the Intelligence Department to see what might be done in the matter. 

Your particular qualifications would be excellent for work in the Military Intelligence Division but unfortunately the fact that you are not a citizen prevents your assignment there at this time. I am afraid there is nothing that can be done, under present conditions, until your citizen status has been changed, but I will certainly notify you should changed conditions throw a different light upon the picture. Incidentally, I have gone over the same phase with Lombard. 

Faithfully yours, 

Marshall
Chief of Staff
