No. 192

Sir: The receipt is acknowledged of your despatch No. 594 of November 14, 1932,56 enclosing a copy of the aide-mémoire which you handed on October 22, 1932, to the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, with regard to the recent proposals of the Egyptian Government respecting the taxation of motor vehicles in Egypt.

The Department takes this opportunity to inform you of its approval of your action in this matter and to advise you that it will give further consideration to the Egyptian proposal concerning the taxation of motor vehicles as soon as it shall have received evidence that the Egyptian Government has discontinued the illegal restrictions and taxes on public carrier vehicles and has otherwise satisfactorily adjusted this question.

Very truly yours,

For the Secretary of State:
W. R. Castle, Jr.
