247. Strongly urge Department to try to clear up question of Kennedy’s status in relation to Ottoman-American Development Company, and inform me by cable. … Kennedy has power of attorney, authenticated by Secretary of State of Delaware, giving full authority to act on behalf of company. On strength of this document am still giving appropriate support to Kennedy in spite of his repudiation by Admiral Chester. Commercial attaché asks that Secretary of Commerce receive paraphrase of this telegram.
