The Secretary of State to the Chargé in Germany (Kirk)

436. Your February 20, 10 a.m. I suggest you consult the Under Secretary on his arrival in Rome as to his itinerary.

The German Chargé d’Affaires informed his Government of the information given him (Department’s February 9, 4 p.m.) and has advised Department orally that his Government would be glad to receive Mr. Welles. The German Government added that since the departure of Ambassador Wilson14 relations between the United States and Germany have been unsatisfactory, and they welcomed the opportunity of discussing this matter with Mr. Welles.
