The Ambassador in Germany ( Sackett ) to the Secretary of State

79. Agreement has been reached with Foreign Office upon text of extradition treaty as outlined in the Department’s despatch 106, June 16, 1930.51 Foreign Office is exceedingly anxious to sign German-American extradition treaty this week as it would be the first one to be signed by Germany since the war. Similar extradition treaties with other Powers will be signed by Germany next week. Foreign Office therefore suggests having written powers witnessed by German Ambassador at Washington and cable confirmation from him as satisfactory.
