The Secretary of State to the Ambassador in Italy (Phillips)

271. Your 658, June 29, 7 p.m. Please say to King Alfonso that your Government greatly appreciates his friendly and helpful message but that, in view of the situation and present policies of this Government, it would seem better for the purpose which the King has in mind for him to approach directly the Governments immediately concerned.
