No. 382 NAI DFA EA 231/4/B

Letter from Joseph P. Walshe to Daniel A. Binchy (Berlin)
(E.A. 231/132)

Dublin, 16 June 1930

Before you come home on leave it is well that you should know that your report has been read by the Minister with great satisfaction.1 It is at present being circulated to the other Cabinet Ministers in turn. There is the fullest agreement with the line of policy you have followed concerning our position in the Commonwealth. We shall have an opportunity of talking the whole matter over when you come to Dublin. Please make the representations you suggest concerning the immediate appointment of a Minister to Dublin. You could say that the Irish Government are beginning to wonder what are the causes of delay. The Minister will be away from the beginning of September till November at least, and it would be very inconvenient for him to have to come back for the ceremony of reception at which his presence is essential. In this case I presume you are seeing von Bülow.

[signed] (Sgd) J.P. Walshe
