The Secretary of State to the Ambassador in France ( Herrick )

421. Department’s 415, November 9, 1 p.m.22 You are informed that the attitude of this Government with respect to American citizens serving in the armed forces in Morocco is based upon the spirit of the laws of the United States regarding foreign enlistment, notably Sections 5282 and 4090 of the Revised Statutes of the United States. Therefore, no official recognition should be extended to any American citizens who have been or who still are connected with the armed forces in Morocco other than that which would ordinarily be extended to any private citizen of American nationality in France.

Please inform Consulates.
