25. Presumably you have received from our Legation in Denmark its telegram to the Department No. 5 of January 7, 2 p.m. in regard to the mission of O’Grady. In case you have not received this telegram inform that Legation that it is the desire of the Department that this and all further messages on the subject be repeated to you.

In case the negotiations by O’Grady may involve, as suggested, the repatriation from Russia of others than British subjects, the Department desires that you present to the British Government the question of including Americans in any arrangement that may be made.

According to the information which this Department has at present, the Americans involved are Mr. Kalamatiano58 and Mrs. Doty.59 The American Government also has an interest, however, in securing the release of Mrs. Kennedy, Miss Loviaguine, and Miss Karin Sante.60
