The Chief of the Division of Western European Affairs, Department of State (Castle) to the Acting Secretary of State


Mr. Grew: Mr. Pelenyi, Hungarian Chargé, came to see me this morning to say that he had received authorization from his Government for the signing of the agreement for a mixed claims commission. He said, however, that this authorization to sign was made out in the name of the Minister and Count Szechenyi will not be back in this country before the end of October. He said, therefore, that instead of sending the papers to us he was at the moment merely informing us that the authorization had arrived so that, if the Department so desired, the papers could be ready when the Minister reaches Washington.
