Memorandum by the Chief of the Division of Near Eastern Affairs (Dulles)


Mr. James Francis Case, of Ulen and Company, called and said that his only purpose in calling was to express his great appreciation for all that the Department’s officials had been able to do for him in connection with his Company’s negotiations with the Greek Government. He referred in the highest terms to the invaluable assistance which he had received from Mr. Laughlin and also stated that Mr. Atherton in London and that Mr. Whitehouse in Paris had been most helpful in securing the consent of the British and French Governments to the pledging of security by Greece for the Ulen Company loan.

In describing the present status of the Company’s business in Greece, he said that work on the new waterworks for Athens had already been commenced and that they had also signed a supplementary agreement for repairing the present waterworks system, which he hoped would result in doubling the water supply of Athens.
