The Ambassador in Italy (Garrett) to the Secretary of State

7. Your instruction No. 816, December 14, 1932. Suvich7 told me yesterday that some differences of opinion with other Ministries still existed but he hoped to be able to take up the proposal for a treaty with [Page 578] me on Tuesday. I could not get him to commit himself further. However, in view of shortness of time, I respectfully request that you send me, by the next pouch, full powers to sign if and when our text is accepted or complete agreement with us reached. If it cannot be signed before my departure the full powers can be returned.

  1. Fulvio Suvich, Italian Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs.
