The Consul General at Salonika (Gwynn) to the Secretary of State

26. The Regent81 completed today a 3 days’ visit to Salonika which appears to have been highly successful. His chief purpose was to assert publicly and solemnly that Macedonia is an integral part of Greece and must so remain. He also stressed Anglo-Greek ties. Enormous crowds evidenced great enthusiasm and no untoward incident marred the occasion. Everyone seems pleased and even the Communists find little to criticize.
