Diego von Bergen, the German Ambassador to the Vatican, sends a telegram to Berlin saying that Vice-Chancellor Franz von Papen and Cardinal Secretary of State Eugenio Pacelli, the future Pope Pius XII, have initialed the Concordat between Nazi Germany and the Vatican (Reichskonkordat).

This isn't the official signing of the document — that comes on July 20 — but barring any crisis, the treaty is essentially concluded.
