The Secretary of State to the Diplomatic Agent and Consul General at Tangier (Blake)
Sir: The Department has received your confidential despatch No. 599 of April 2, 1931, regarding the electrical concession in Tangier. Should the appropriate Protectorate authorities address a communication to you requesting that the American Government assent to an exceptional derogation of the principle of public adjudication in respect of this concession, you are authorized to inform the Protectorate Government that this Government is prepared to take that action.
Very truly yours,
