The Acting Secretary of State to the British Chargé (Chilton)

Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your note No. 711 of November 16, 1926, relating to the publication of certain correspondence between the Department and the Embassy in regard to the diversion of water from Lake Michigan by the Sanitary District of Chicago.

The proposal made by the Canadian Government that the correspondence be made public simultaneously in the United States and Canada on December 9, 1926, has been referred to the authorities of this Government directly concerned with the matter to which the correspondence relates, and I shall be glad to inform you at the earliest date possible of the views of this Government in regard to that proposal.

Accept [etc.]

Joseph C. Grew
