Note dated yesterday was this morning handed to the Minister of Foreign Affairs in person. Before reading it he stated that he had brought our conversation of August 14th, see my 79, August 14, 1 p.m., to the attention of the highest authorities and he was happy to inform me that he had been able to obtain a delay of one month. I shall comment further in a subsequent telegram.

May I give copies of the note to my British and French colleagues? They have as yet received no instructions.
