The Secretary of State to the British Ambassador (Howard)

Excellency: I have the honor to refer to Your Excellency’s note of August 17, 1927, in which you state that His Majesty’s Government has informed the Secretary General of the League of Nations, in reply to his communication of June 7, 1927, which was addressed to various governments including His Majesty’s Government and the Government of the United States, that His Majesty’s Government do not consider it desirable that the classification of diplomatic agents adopted by the Congresses of Vienna and Aix-la-Chapelle should be revised. Your inquiry of November 29, 1927,53 on the same subject has been received.

In reply I take pleasure in informing you that my Government concurs in the view of His Majesty’s Government that the present classification of diplomatic agents should not be revised. The Secretary General of the League of Nations will be informed accordingly in the reply of my Government to his communication of June 7, 1927.

Accept [etc.]
