The Chargé in Greece (Hall) to the Secretary of State

89. Legation’s telegram 82, June 7, and 85, June 9.24 Foreign Office yesterday notified me that in future all men arrested in Greece for evading military service would in case they claimed foreign naturalization be taken to the nearest consulate of their adopted country for examination of papers instead of to Prefecture of Police. If this order is followed by authorities generally which I very much doubt it will tend to improve present highly unsatisfactory situation.

  1. The latter not printed.
