Chargé Carter to the Secretary of State.

No. 567.]

Sir: I have the honor to inclose herewith a copy of a note which I have received from the foreign office, of this date, together with a copy of the dispatch from Sir Edward Grey to the British minister at Brussels, to which it refers.1

It will be observed that Sir Edward Grey states in his note that the memorandum referred to in his instruction to His Majesty’s minister at Brussels is not yet complete, but that a copy will be communicated to me as soon as it is ready. In the meanwhile, Sir Arthur Hardinge has been directed to take action on the dispatch without waiting for the memorandum.

I have, etc.,

John Ridgely Carter.
