The Secretary of State to the Ambassador in France (Herrick)
Sir: The Department acknowledges the receipt of your despatch No. 5671 of November 4, 1925, transmitting the original and a translation of a note addressed to you by the Minister of Afghanistan accompanied by a draft of a proposed treaty between Afghanistan and the United States providing for the establishment of diplomatic and consular relations between the two countries.
It is noted that the Afghan Minister in his communication to you of October 30, 1925 makes reference to conversations of July 15 and October 28, 1925, respectively, with you with regard to this matter. The Department, however, has no record that the substance of these conversations has been embodied in any reports submitted to it by the Embassy and desires therefore that a report be prepared and forwarded at your early convenience.2
There is enclosed herewith for your consideration the text of a reply which, unless you see any objection, you may hand to the Afghan Minister conveying this Government’s appreciation of the friendly sentiments which he has expressed toward this country.
