130 Baird, Annie
The Ambassador in Great Britain (Mellon) to the Secretary of State
[Received December 7.]
Sir: I have the honor to refer to the Department’s instruction No. 232 of September 26, 1932, File No. 130–Baird, Annie, and to transmit herewith a copy of the note which on October 10 was addressed to the Foreign Office21 and a copy of the latter’s reply under date of November 28, from which it will be seen that the British authorities are not disposed to certify to the legality of Miss Baird’s adoption. The Embassy has informed the Consul at Dundee in this sense and has added that it was asking the Department to instruct it as to whether Miss Baird is still to be regarded as an American citizen. Instructions in that relation are accordingly respectfully requested.
