The Secretary of State to the Apostolic Delegate in the United States (Cicognani)

My Dear Archbishop: With further reference to your letter of June 12, 1944 (file no. 171/44) concerning the temporary detention by the Allied military authorities of two members of the German Embassy to the Holy See, I am happy to inform you that instructions have gone forward to the Supreme Allied Commander to release these individuals and permit them to enter Vatican City.

Sincerely yours,

Cordell Hull
