The French Ambassador ( Daeschner ) to the Secretary of State

[Translation7]

Mr. Secretary of State: In compliance with instructions from my Government, I have the honor to inform Your Excellency that the Statute of Tangier established through the Paris agreement of December 18, 1923, will go into effect on June 1.

This step has been taken in accord with the Governments of Spain and Great Britain, and my Government hopes that the Government of the United States will welcome the establishment of a regime, to the arrangements of which it has raised no fundamental objection.

Please accept [etc.]

E. Daeschner
