The German Embassy to the Department of State


With reference to the notes of June 21st and August 11th of this year (N. Y. 471) and to the provisional reply of the Department of State of August 22nd of this year (611.6231/290 [711.622/160])87 the German Embassy has the honor again to ask the American Government to be good enough to make a decision.

According to the provisions of the German-American Commercial Treaty, Article 1, there could be hardly any doubt that the pertinent law, “Alcoholic Beverage Control Law”, of New York State, is not in agreement, in paragraph 84, with the Treaty, and therefore should be amended.
