The Chargé in Great Britain (Atherton) to the Secretary of State
[Received January 7, 1933.]
Sir: I have the honor to refer to my telegram No. 345 of December 28, 12 noon,17 and to report that on December 22 I called by [Page 28] appointment on Sir Robert Vansittart and invited his attention to the fact that the Embassy had yet received no reply to the representations made by the Ambassador in the matter of the Koweit oil concession, reported in the Embassy’s despatch No. 558 of December 15, 1932. Sir Robert stated his regret at the delay and promised an immediate reply.
On the evening of December 23 I received a Foreign Office note signed by the Assistant Secretary of State, Sir Lancelot Oliphant. A copy of this is attached hereto. The contents of this note have been orally transmitted to the London representative of the American interests concerned.
