The Minister in Egypt (Howell) to the Secretary of State

16. Your telegram number 11, April 22 [23], 6 p.m.

Winlock’s cable to Metropolitan reported the facts correctly.
Have made it clear Egyptian Foreign Office that my Government desires statement that the Egyptian Government accepts additional clause and principles mentioned in draft of note page 7.
Aside from discussing the matter fully with the Foreign Minister I have done likewise with the Minister of Public Works and expect official acceptance of our proposal shortly.
