The Greek Minister for Foreign Affairs ( Michalakopoulos ) to the American Minister in Greece ( Skinner )
Mr. Minister: I have the honor to acknowledge to Your Excellency receipt of your letter of this date, reading as follows:
“In signing today the treaty of extradition between the United States of America and the Hellenic Republic, I have the honor to declare to your Excellency under the authority and in the name of my Government, that the Government of the United States will extend to Greece the most favorable treatment now accorded, or which may hereafter be accorded, by the United States to a third Power, with respect to matters dealt with in Articles 9 and 11 of the above mentioned treaty, particularly in that which concerns expenses of every nature, including the usual charges, and the procedure to be followed after the demand for extradition.”
Acknowledging receipt of this communication, with the content of which the Hellenic Government is in agreement, I take this opportunity [etc.]
protocol of exchange
The undersigned, the Secretary of State of the United States of America and the Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary of Greece at Washington, met this day for the purpose of exchanging the ratifications of the extradition treaty between the United States of America and Greece, signed at Athens on May 6, 1931.
It being found on a comparison of the respective ratifications that the words “insurance and other companies,” in Article 2, paragraph 10, of the English text of the treaty as contained in the Greek instrument of ratification, are not contained in that article and paragraph as it appears in the English text of the instrument of ratification of the United States of America, the Secretary of State of the United States of America declared that it was intended by the Government of the United States to have these words appear in the English text of the United States original of the treaty, as their equivalent appears in the Greek text thereof, that their omission from the English text was an inadvertence and that the United States original of the treaty and the United States ratified exchange copy of the treaty should be understood as including those words, the same as if they had been actually written in the English text thereof.
This declaration being accepted by the Minister of Greece, the exchange took place this day in the usual form.
In witness whereof, the aforesaid Plenipotentiaries have signed the present Protocol of Exchange and have affixed their seals thereto.
