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


29. Although every effort is being made to obtain the approval of Congress for the financial settlement with Greece before the adjournment of Congress toward the end of May, at present the prospects are not encouraging.

The Department understands you do not intend to go on leave (granted you by the Department on April 3) until after August 1. It seems clearly desirable for you to remain in Athens for at least one month following the adjournment of Congress.
