Telegram 2404 to Vienna, March 18, authorized Ambassador Matthews to exchange notes with the Austrian Government on settlement of claims under Article 26 of the Austrian State Treaty, which provided for compensation of political persecutees. (Department of State, Central Files, 263.0041–A/3–1359) Delays by the British and French, who concluded similar agreements, postponed the exchange until May 1959.
