The Secretary of State to the Chargé in Siam (Williams)

4. Referring to your despatches 181 November 17, and 191 November 26, 1921, instructions based upon your 167, October 28, 1921, have been mailed to you. You will avoid, save as the due protection of American interests may require, any issue on this subject. For your confidential information. All provisions concerning land tenure and many of the customary provisions for most favored nation treatment were intentionally omitted from the Siamese Treaty in order to avoid complicating certain pending questions such as that created by the alien land laws recently adopted in various states.
