The Secretary of State to the Danish Minister (Kauffmann)

Sir: I have the honor to inform you that in view of existing circumstances the United States Government desires temporarily to establish a consulate in Greenland.

I would appreciate being informed whether the provisional establishment of such an office would be satisfactory and whether provisional recognition might be given to the consul to be placed in charge whose jurisdiction would extend over all of Greenland.

Accept [etc.]

Cordell Hull
