The Italian Premier (Mussolini) to the Italian Ambassador in the United States (De Martino)28

Your telegrams 88 and 89. I felt sure that I would obtain just and prompt redress from the fairness, the loyalty and the friendship of the [Page 642] American Government and the American people whose respect for truth is well known to me. Will you please communicate to the Federal Government that I consider closed the incident which for my part I have already forgotten. After making this communication to the American Government Your Excellency may give the press this text.
