The Minister in Ethiopia (Southard) to the Secretary of State


Referring to the telegram from the Department of October 1, 6 p.m. I have discussed with Tafari the proposal of the White Corporation. Until British Government replies to his inquiry concerning terms under which they will use water, it is considered by him strategically inadvisable to call conference. Such reply is expected by him with arrival of new British Minister in December. Refer my despatch No. 67, September 20.11
