Dunn, Washington. Acknowledges note of July 7 regarding Esperanto Congress; will be in Salzburg on day Congress opens, but has asked [James Barclay] Young to attend opening meeting; glad [William] Phillips to have a month off before he goes to Rome; regrets he will be leaving Department; does not wish to appear stingy about telegraphing Department, but feels he got preliminary information to Department before Austro-German agreement was signed; no one knows what will happen; the major powers and even the dictators don't know, but the trends are clear; Austro-German agreement may mean that for perhaps a year Germany will make no overt move against Austria, but the process of undermining her sovereignty will go on; has made study of some German textbooks; forces being unleashed which endanger all Europe; having many visitors from U.S., which pleases us but keeps us busy; sending clippings from London Times; does not accept Times as authority and disagrees with some of its editorials, but items from Vienna and Berlin correspondents good.
