The Department of State to the British Embassy


Under date of October 2nd a communication was received by the American Embassy in London from the British Foreign Office suggesting certain changes in previous drafts of the proposed Convention relating to the Mandate for Palestine.

While the Department is not adverse to proceeding with the consideration of this question, it has been felt that in view of the Lausanne Conference it might be agreeable to the British Foreign Office to await the termination of the present negotiations with Turkey before continuing the correspondence for the conclusion of the Palestine Mandate Convention.
