2. My Ministers note with pleasure that the American Government have agreed to accept a Minister Plenipotentiary from the Irish Free State. They will be glad if His Majesty's Ambassador is instructed by cable to ascertain from the American Government if they will accept Timothy Aloysius Smiddy in that capacity.
