The Associate General Counsel of the Standard Oil Company of New Jersey (Guy Wellman) to the Secretary of State
[Received December 21.]
My Dear Mr. Secretary: In Mr. Teagle’s absence, this will acknowledge the receipt of your favor of the 18th instant, file NE 890g.6363 T 84/123, with reference to Article 34 of the draft convention (as of November 16, 1923) now under discussion between the Turkish Petroleum Company and the Iraq Government.
We beg to thank the Department for its helpful consideration of the matter of our suggested amendment to Article 34 relative to nationality, and the Turkish Petroleum Company’s request that it be deleted.
For the Department’s information, we beg to enclose a copy of the cablegram which we are sending to Mr. H. E. Nichols today, as Managing Director of the Turkish Petroleum Company, which we trust takes note of your views and suggestions. I read the cablegram to Mr. Dulles over the telephone for his criticism before sending it.
