28. Advise Nansen of substance of Riga’s No. 444, June 21, which Riga is repeating to you and inquire if Nansen has made any progress toward release of Americans.

Let him know that situation reported by Riga is regarded by this Government as most serious and that consideration is being given to every possible means of terminating it.
