No. 63 NAI DT S1983
Dublin, 19 February 1927
I have the honour to inform you that His Majesty's Government in the Irish Free State wish to advise His Majesty to issue revised credentials to Professor Timothy A. Smiddy, Minister Plenipotentiary for the Irish Free State at Washington, for the purpose of adding to his present title that of 'Envoy Extraordinary'.
2. They further wish to inform His Majesty that the change in the title follows naturally on the appointment by His Majesty of a Minister Plenipotentiary and Envoy Extraordinary to represent the interests of Canada.
3. My Ministers will be much obliged if you will arrange to have the revised credentials sent to the Minister for External Affairs for transmission to Professor Smiddy who will present them in due course.
I have the honour to be,
Your most obedient, humble Servant,
[stamped] (Sgd) T.M. Healy
