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

252. Under Minister for Foreign Affairs3d told me this morning that Government is preparing to leave soon probably for Crete. He said it sincerely desires to have me remain attached to it but that in view of immediate situation in which it can neither provide nor be responsible for transportation I had better stay here and rejoin it later wherever it may be, adding that it would give it some feeling of confidence to have the American Minister remain in Athens for the present. He suggested that when it becomes no longer possible to stay here the best way to depart might be via Turkey.
