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

12. In my despatch 783, March 26,1 [which] probably has not yet arrived, I pointed out British judge appointed adviser foreign affairs thus making vacant place on Mixed Court. Cairo now proposed to appoint another British subject in his stead. It would appear such action is not in conformity with the equal representation as provided by [agreement?] between the powers and the Egyptian Government at the time of establishing mixed courts. Is it desirable that any representations be made? See enclosure to my despatch 760.1

Howell
