The Secretary of State to the Chargé in France (Whitehouse)
Washington, November 28, 1923—5 p.m.
429. Your despatch No. 3637, October 30, 1923.
Department is desirous that French Government be made aware informally that this Government does not consider the cancellation of American capitulatory rights in the French Zone of Morocco to be a natural sequence to our recognition of French Protectorate in part of Morocco, or to our suggested adherence to a convention purporting to deal solely with internationalization of City of Tangier.
Repeat to London as Department’s 359 and Madrid as 82 for their information.
