The Ambassador in Great Britain (Mellon) to the Secretary of State
[Received December 7.]
Sir: I have the honor to refer to the Embassy’s despatch No. 483 of November 12, 1932, with reference to the Koweit oil concession, and to enclose a copy of a Foreign Office note, dated November 23, 1932, on this subject.
The text of this note has been discussed with the representative of the American company in London, who surmises that the terms of the American draft proposals for a concession are more favorable than those of the Anglo-Persian Oil Company.
I shall take occasion when I visit the Foreign Office at a not distant date to make inquiry as to the status of this matter.
Counselor of Embassy
