The Acting Secretary of State to the Ambassador in Spain ( Hammond )
44. Your 63, August 26, 4 p.m. Please inform the Spanish Government as follows:
While reserving its attitude towards the specific proposal of the Spanish Government for the future administration and government of Tangier, the Government of the United States would be disposed to give favorable consideration to participating in a conference to discuss the Tangier question provided that all of the major Powers interested in Morocco should be present. The Government of the United States, however, doubts if any useful purpose could be served by such a conference unless the attendance of all of these major Powers interested in Morocco should be assured.
