The Minister Resident in Ethiopia (Engert) to the Secretary of State

287. Your 18927 and 190. The night has so far been exceptionally calm and if report in your 187 is even approximately correct, we [Page 264] all feel we should not evacuate. British Legation has so far not got in touch with me, but if, after consultation with officer who would presumably accompany convoy, I consider that there is no other alternative I shall not hesitate to act in accordance with your suggestion.
