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

514. My 507, December 4, 7 p.m.99 and previous. I understand from the Minister of Foreign Affairs that there is some difficulty in connection with the visa of Hughes passport by the Italian Embassy in that it states that he is assigned “to the Legation at Addis Ababa” instead of “to Addis Ababa” to which latter designation the Italian authorities agreed. As the objection of the Foreign Office is solely to the use of the words “Legation at” on the passport itself I sincerely hope that this matter may be satisfactorily arranged.
