File No. 841.711/200

The Ambassador in Great Britain (Page) to the Secretary of State


821. Your telegram 162, September 21. Sir Edward Grey now informs me after investigation that the United States mail on board S. S. Noordam was not interfered with by British officials. He asks me to say that if the report of interference with it has arisen from the fact that any of the letters in question were found to be opened when they reached their destination, he would be glad if a specimen of such envelopes could be submitted for further investigation.
