Enclosed with No. 575. Austria one of the first of the former enemies of Allied powers to be admitted to League of Nations and has proved her loyalty and willingness to cooperate; Austria recognizes that League helped her achieve financial reconstruction, but feels she now must have complete equality in order to provide security; will not believe that the powers are more concerned about the independence and welfare of a distant country [Abyssinia] than they are about that of a member state, one of the oldest countries in the heart of Europe.
Messersmith, George S. (George Strausser), 1883-1960.
