The Secretary of State to the American Embassy at Paris .


(Mr. Root instructs the embassy to ascertain if it is agreeable to French Government that our consuls take charge of archives of Venezuelan consulates in France and at Port de France as requested by the Venezuelan Government, and if so to instruct consuls at Paris, Bordeaux, Havre, Nice, Marseilles, and Nantes for St. Nazaire, where the agent, a Frenchman, could probably not assume custody.)
