The declaration was communicated to Lord Rothschild by Arthur James Balfour, in his capacity as foreign secretary, in the following letter, dated November 2, 1917, and made public a week later. Balfour's name has been associated with the Declaration, as he warmly advocated it; but the final decision rested with the war cabinet, which gave its approval as a considered act of policy.
