In a cable sent from von Hassell to von Neurath and von Hindenburg he stats that reliable sources close to Czech President Masaryk had stated that he would support Poland if they decided for a preemptive war against Germany.

When von Hindenburg died on the 2nd Hitler announces a bill that the Chancellorship and Presidency offices would be merged into one with Hitler taking that position. Von Hindenburg had been sick, but to how they posted the date on the bill the day before seems either lucky, his death was planed, or they lied and post dated the bill the day before he died.
