Note of Aden signed

In beginning of 1864 we have been adressed by the Ottoman Empire about their uneasiness on our rightfull presence at Aden and Kuwait. As strongly as we rejected any claims on their behalf, we still want to express our will of good neighborship and mutual benefit with the Sublime Porte. Thus we agreed on talks starting this very year and sent Lieutenant General Winfield Scott as envoy to Aden. As a token of our good will we furthermore agreed to finance a manufacturing plant. An according note has been signed on board of USS New Hampshire in the Port of Aden. The nescessary means will be handed over in the next weeks. The material consists of 1400 cash of private investors and 26 tons of steel, 8 tons of coal and 26 tons of manufacturing goods.

British Foreign Office Communique

Her Majesty's Government is pleased with the Swiss attempt at resolving the conflict between France, Austria and Sardinia-Piedmont. We hope the Austrians will realize their blatant attempt to expand its empire at the expense of those countries around it will not be accepted. The government of the United States has already expressed its opposition to portioning Italy beyond the provinces that Austria has legitimate claims.

The British people wish to see an end to all wars. This government is willing to accept an Austrian ownership of La Spezia and French ownership of Savoy and Nice. Allesandria was already taken by Austria. Hopefully this could end the war and allow for peace on the Italian peninsula.

*Communique intended for immediate release*

Word from Geneva and Nice is that diplomats from France and Sardinia-Piedmont have come to an agreement to end the war between the two respective nations. It is expected that the treaty will be released soon, but the public will have to wait for the full terms for now. With the detente on the Austrian front, it appears to be the end of warfare on the Italian peninsula for now.
