The Ambassador in Italy ( Child ) to the Secretary of State

[Paraphrase]

22. Your telegram of May 2, 5 [4] p.m. I have a categorical denial from Worthington-Evans16 that the supposed Krassin, Boyle, Dutch-Shell agreement has been signed. Evans states that the information would have been given to his delegation if it were true. In answer to an inquirer the Russian delegation has replied that while negotiations have been taking place a conclusion has not been reached.
