The Acting Secretary of State to the Chargé in Estonia (Leonard)

5. Your No. 7, May 15, 1937. If you have not already done so, please acknowledge Foreign Office’s note of May 15, 1937, and say that the Government of the United States accepts the note as a withdrawal of the Estonian proposal of April 22, 1936, insofar as that proposal would have operated to terminate the treaty of friendship, commerce and consular rights between the United States and Estonia on May 22, 1937, thereby continuing the treaty in force until May 22, 1938. At the same time you may again express this Government’s appreciation of Estonia’s courtesy.20

  1. The Chargé in Estonia reported in his despatch No. 178 (Diplomatic), May 26, that this instruction had been embodied in a note handed by him to the Estonian Acting Minister for Foreign Affairs on the same day (611.60i31/72).
