The Secretary of State to the Chargé in Rumania (Patterson)
30. Rumanian Minister has stated his Government glad to negotiate treaty of arbitration and treaty of conciliation with United States and expressed hope treaties may be signed before my departure on August seventeenth. To enable this necessary Minister should have full powers. Say to Minister for Foreign Affairs that if autographed full powers mentioning both treaties or separate full powers in each case be exhibited to you, you will be glad to cable their texts in full to me. Cable promptly.
