Sir Mortimer Durand to Mr. Loomis.

No. 15.]

Sir: I have the honor to inform you that I have received a communication from His Majesty’s principal secretary of state for foreign affairs stating that the Canadian government are quite ready to enter into arrangements for the delimitation of the boundary between the Dominion of Canada and the Territory of Alaska, in conformity with the award of the Alaska Boundary Tribunal.

The Canadian government propose to appoint Mr. King as their representative on the Delimitation Commission. Mr. King will be ready to meet the expert named by the United States Government as soon as the appointment of the latter is made.

I have, etc.,

(For Sir Mortimer Durand.)

Arthur S. Raikes.
