The Canadian Minister (Massey) to the Secretary of State

No. 145

Sir: I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of Mr. Castle’s note of August 30th. 1928, in which he informed the Legation of the results of the investigation, conducted by the appropriate authorities of the Government of the United States, into certain incidents in which bullets apparently fired from territory of the United States had landed in Canadian territory in the vicinity of the Detroit River. These incidents I brought to your attention in my note Number 93 of May 26th. 1928.67

I am instructed to express to you the appreciation of His Majesty’s Government in Canada at the action which has been taken in investigating the incidents in question, and particularly to acknowledge the expression of regret in regard to the first incident which Mr. Castle was good enough to offer in his note under reference.

I have [etc.]

Vincent Massey
