The Minister in Greece (Skinner) to the Secretary of State

66. Many callers at Legation to offer thanks on debt settlement coming at moment of peculiar difficulty. All papers discuss settlement favorably, and Tsaldaris, leader of opposition in Chamber, expressed the hope that agreement formally announced in Chamber will deliver Greece from other charges and obligations. Public generally are thankful and grateful. I am asked whether Department’s disapproval of loans to Greece is now lifted or will continue until Congress has ratified agreement.
