Feb. 20, 1923 Just finished up a recap of some of the happenings in Italy recently. Benito Mussolini took power when I was just starting here at the League. He marched on Rome, gained recognition in the government, and now has pushed himself to power with his support of Black Shirt Fascists. Fascism is an interesting concept; it seems like it is extremely plausible, but not with a man like Mussolini, a power hungry savage. He’s one of those men who, if given the option, would gladly give up men’s lives for some headlines; which is what he is doing. Following the Treaty of Versailles, Europe had been on an odd shift. Industries were pouring out goods, the demand was low,

thus creating a breaking economy, but people are learning how to easily benefit from it. Countries have been split and new

dictatorships argue daily over power and who gets how much.

It’s a game; a game that is soon going to flip completely. I fear that something is looming ahead. That being said, yesterday I

received a telegram from the League’s main office in Brussels. They are sending me back to Belgium for a quick assessment

meeting. Did I do something wrong? My nerves are losing me.

What if I lose this job? Or what if I am already being stationed somewhere for spy training or work? This soon?
