The Ambassador to the Greek Government in Exile (Kirk) to the Secretary of State

Greek Series 63. My 57, September 4, 5 p.m. The Greek Prime Minister informs me that the crisis precipitated by the arrival of the six so called representatives from Greece is less acute. The messages from the President and Churchill have produced a calming effect on the Greek Cabinet and recent military developments have overshadowed the internal fracas. The plan now seems to be for the King, who is leaving for Syria shortly to recuperate from a recent illness, to preside at a Cabinet meeting upon his return in about 3 weeks when this and other matters will be discussed.
