ernment of its burden of expense in connection with the care of Greek
refugees in the Near East and Africa.
  It is intended that the latter project, which has been warmly wel-
comed by the Greek Government, should be carried out within the
framework of the Middle East Refugee Relief Administration, with
appropriate changes in this organization to permit participation of
personnel of the Greek War Relief Association in the direction and
operation of the Administration's activities insofar as they relate to
Greek refugees.
  There is transmitted in a following telegram,94 for delivery to the
Middle East Refugee Relief Administration, a message prepared by
the Greek War Relief Association, in consultation with the American
Red Cross, formulating certain preliminary inquiries and proposals.
  Please discuss this matter with the appropriate British and Greek
authorities and assist in every proper way in working out arrange-
ments which will be satisfactory to all interested parties.
