The Minister in Greece (MacVeagh) to the Secretary of State

190. My number 182, July 31. Not having received a reply as promised, I again saw the Under Secretary for Foreign Affairs this morning, at which time he excused his delay on grounds of personal illness and the difficulty of evolving as satisfactory a reply as possible under the conditions now affecting the Greek treasury. He said he would need several more days as well as further conference with the Minister of Finance, which he arranged in my presence, adding that the contents and tenor of the Greek Government’s message are of more importance than its date.
