The Agent and Consul General at Cairo (Sprigg) to the Secretary of State

31. The Foreign Office has requested me to transmit by telegraph the following:

As the Mixed Courts terminate October 31st current, the adherence of the American Government is asked to a prolongation of these courts for an indefinite period from November 1st next, under reservation of the right of the Egyptian Government to end them upon giving a year’s notice in advance to the interested powers.
