  40. Department's circular of January 29, 3 p.m. During my call
at the Foreign Office this afternoon I expressed the hope that the
Italian Government would be represented at the Technical Textile
Conference. In reply Count Ciano5 informed me that inasmuch as
the Italian Government was no longer represented on the League or
on the International Labor Conference he was not in a position to send
a delegate to the Textile Conference. On the other hand, if before
April 2, Italy should again become associated with the League and
the labor organization, Italy would be represented at the Conference.

  28. Department's circular January 29, 3 p.m., to Paris. Doctor
Schacht6 told me Germany ought to accept and that he would be glad
to go himself. Von Neurath 7 said about the same to me on February
3 and added that he would talk with Schacht and others and let us
know their decision. No reply has come yet. I have my doubts about
any participation useful as it might be.
