The Secretary of State to the British Ambassador (Geddes)

Excellency: I have the honor to refer to my note of March 12, 1920, in which I requested information as to whether your Government is disposed to take up the matter of negotiating a convention [Page 297] with the Government of the United States whereby the convention concluded on March 2, 1899, between the United States and Great Britain with regard to the tenure and disposition of real and personal property will be extended and made applicable to Canada.

I shall be grateful if you will inform me whether any decision has been reached by your Government regarding the matter.

Accept [etc.]

Bainbridge Colby
