The Secretary of State to the Ambassador in the United Kingdom ( Bingham )

68. Engert is departing from Addis Ababa on March 5 and instructions have been issued to close the office entirely on March 31. Unless you perceive some objection please advise the Foreign Office orally and informally that we should be appreciative if it would continue to furnish us, as has been done during recent months, with any available information regarding welfare of American nationals in Ethiopia.
