File No. 763.72/9719

The Minister in Greece ( Droppers) to the Secretary of State


488. Your 429, April 19, 5 p.m. Have given publicity to statement in your telegram. It has had happy and widespread effect. Venizelos said to me a month ago he would like some assurance from Entente Powers about integrity of Greece, if not publicly then privately, so that he could if challenged in the House of Representatives reassure the members.
