  5. Your No. 7, May 15, 1937. If you have not already done so,
please acknowledge Foreign Office's note of May 15, 1937, and say
that the Government of the United States accepts the note as a with-
drawal of the Estonian proposal of April 22, 1936, insofar as that
proposal would have operated to terminate the treaty of friendship,
commerce and consular rights between the United States and Estonia
on May 22, 1937, thereby continuing the treaty in force until May
22, 1938. At the same time you may again express this Government's
appreciation of Estonia's courtesy.20
