The Ambassador in Austria-Hungary (Penfield) to the Secretary of State


913. The Austro-Hungarian Minister for Foreign Affairs is sending through our good offices a telegram in cipher to be delivered to Doctor Dumba directing him to proceed to Vienna and requests you to be good enough to secure the necessary safe-conduct for him and his family from the British and French Governments. Baron Burian says that as a matter of course Doctor Dumba’s recall from Washington is final. This he said to me personally with emphasis and I have shown him the text of this telegram. He wants Doctor Dumba to start by the 28th instant.
