The Minister in Egypt (Gunther) to the Secretary of State
[Received October 20—2:45 p.m.]
41. Your instruction No. 4, August 16.1 Shaw’s personal letter of August 23rd and my despatch 41, September 19, 1928.1 Under Secretary Foreign Affairs told me this morning that though treaties were still under consideration by the state legal committee he had no doubt but that it would be possible within a very brief interval to conclude these treaties with our Government through the Egyptian Minister at Washington. He observed that, as decisions of the Mixed Courts could in no way be involved by the terms of these treaties and that matters concerning third parties were not, it was felt by the Egyptian Government that no obstacle existed to their conclusion.
