FOREIGN RELATIONS, 1920, VOLUME II
I have the honor to add that, should the Royal Hellenic Govern-
ment prefer not to enter into so formal an agreement to run only
to the time when that Government is in a position to negotiate new
Treaties, possibly a brief period, this Government would be equally
appreciative of an early assurance from the Royal Hellenic Govern-
ment that after January 26, 1921, this Government will continue to
enjoy the advantages of a Treaty-Government until a new Treaty
has been concluded; until the present Commercial Treaties of the
other Allied and Associated nations with Greece have ceased to be
operative; or until three months after notice has been given of the
intention of the Royal Hellenic Government to withhold some part
of the reciprocal advantages traditionally enjoyed by Greece and
the United States in their trade and intercourse.
