But more convincing is the argument that Henderson had shown himself to be successful at getting on with dictators like King Alexander, and that this capacity clinched his appointment. 21 He may also have feared a political appointee being sent to Berlin to push the appeasement policy.

Yet according to the British Foreign Policy Document series, 'Henderson worked out for himself the line he would follow in Berlin.

P. Conwell Evans, the maverick English professor who taught at Konigsberg University, and had links with the Berlin Embassy, 20 A Man with a Mission 21 subsequently claimed, however, that Henderson had offered him an alternative explanation for his line.

23 Vansittart may well have wished to reward such loyalty by granting Henderson a senior post. 25 Certainly Vansittart knew Henderson's record.
