The Consul General at Geneva (Tittmann) to the Secretary of State

113. Department’s telegram 78, July 9, 4 p.m. Avenol informs me that technical activities of the League (in particular the economic and financial intelligence service and opium) will be maintained as far as war conditions permit and as long as funds are available. He estimates that he has sufficient funds to carry on for another year.

The answer to last paragraph [sentence] of the Department’s telegram is affirmative as regards both questions.
