File No. 701.6311/152

The Austro-Hungarian Ambassador (Dumba) to the Third Assistant Secretary of State (Phillips)

My Dear Mr. Phillips: As the papers begin to publish spurious texts of my letter to Baron Burian, I should like to be able to refer to the real one, or at least to its English translation cabled to the State Department. Could you be kind enough to ask Mr. Lansing to have a copy of it forwarded to me to New York, St. Regis Hotel, still to-day, as I shall only return to Lenox on Saturday from New York.

These papers are a nightmare.

Many thanks from yours very sincerely,

C. Dumba
