Proclamation 2180—Travel by American Citizens on Ethiopian and Italian Vessels
By the President of the United States of America
Whereas by my proclamation of October 5, 1935, issued pursuant to section 6 of the joint resolution of Congress approved August 31, 1935, I proclaimed that war unhappily existed between Ethiopia and the Kingdom of Italy,
And Whereas all citizens of the United States were thereby admonished to abstain from traveling on any vessel of either of the belligerent nations contrary to the provisions of the said joint resolution,
And Whereas notice was thereby given that any citizen of the United States who might travel on such a vessel, contrary to the provisions of the said joint resolution, would do so at his own risk,
And Whereas section 6 of the aforesaid joint resolution provides in part as follows:
When, in the President's judgment, the conditions which have caused him to issue his proclamation have ceased to exist, he shall revoke his proclamation and the provisions of this section shall thereupon cease to apply,
And Whereas the conditions which caused me to issue my aforesaid proclamation of October 5, 1935, have ceased to exist,
Now, Therefore, I, Franklin D. Roosevelt, President of the United States of America, do hereby revoke the aforesaid proclamation of October 5, 1935.
In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States of America to be affixed.
Done at the City of Washington this 20th day of June in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and thirty-six, and of the Independence of the United States of America the one hundred and sixtieth.
FRANKLIN D ROOSEVELT
