The Secretary of State to the Ambassador in Italy ( Phillips )
Sir: Reference is made to the Embassy’s despatch No. 922 of May 24, 1938,4 regarding compensation for the properties at Sayo and Gore, Ethiopia, which were taken over by the Italian authorities from the United Presbyterian Mission, and there is transmitted a copy of a further letter and its enclosure on this subject5 from the Financial Secretary and Treasurer of the above mentioned Mission Board. In as much as this letter indicates that no adjustment has yet been made, it is requested that you again bring the matter to the attention of the appropriate Italian authorities with a view to expediting an early and satisfactory settlement. It is also requested that you keep the Department currently informed of developments in this case.
Very truly yours,
