SnI: With reference to your note of January 24, 1920, notifying
this Government of the intention of the Royal Hellenic Government
to arrest the operation of the Treaty of Commerce and Navigation
of 1837 on January 26, 1921, I have the honor to enquire whether
the Royal Hellenic Government would agree to enter immediately
into negotiations with this Government looking towards the sign-
ing and ratification at an early date of a brief Treaty, similar to
the draft transmitted herewith in triplicate," amending Article
XVII of the Treaty of 1837 so as to extend the provisions of that
Treaty until three months after one of the High Contracting Parties
has declared its intention to renounce it.
