The Ambassador in Italy ( Page ) to the Secretary of State
[Received November 17—6:20 a.m.]
2368. Learned that detachment of troops have [occupied?] Fiume, but some doubt exists whether Italians only or international force.
The Fiume Italian Deputy, who called on me to-day, states that after talk with Premier Orlando, he [sent?] a note to Baron Sonnino the evening the latter left Rome for Paris requesting that Fiume be taken under the Allies.
