The Secretary of State to the Chargé in Great Britain (Atherton)

50. Your despatch 2482, December 29, 1931. If you have not received the reply promised by Oliphant please take up the matter again informally with the Foreign Office. Explain that the Department does not wish to be unduly insistent in this matter, but since the whole question has been under consideration by the interested departments of the British Government for some time it is hoped that a reply may soon be received.
