484.11 Young, Reuben S., No. 2/13: Telegram
The Minister in Ethiopia (Southard) to the Secretary of State
[Received August 4—4:23 a.m.]
9. I have seen the Emperor and reviewed with him the Department’s telegram of July 20, 8 p.m. He is unwilling to give definite answer until Foreign Office shall have had time to reconsider claims on the basis of the representations authorized by the Department’s telegram of July 20, 8 p.m. I have impressed upon His Majesty that further undue delay will be considered inexcusable. I hope to have definite answer for report within 2 weeks.
