“If a note in the form submitted by Bitter, which we understand as furnishing the assurances requested as to the intention of the German Government is sent by the German Government, and if before September 30, 1932, the German Government gives a notice of postponement without any conditions or supplementary declaration, the Treasury will waive the 90-days’ notice upon the express understanding that the note to the Secretary of State of May 26th was and has always been understood to be merely a unilateral declaration by the German Government and in no sense a bilateral agreement.”
