191. For your information and for Einstein:

Your 3, November 8. Department has no authority without special act of Congress to appoint Charge d’Affaires, inasmuch as such appointment would in fact establish new mission. You may, however, as special agent continue to enjoy individual rank of Chargé d’Affaires with the distinction that you hold no office as such.
