130 Howe, Audrey Marie

The Chargé in Canada (Boal) to the Secretary of State

No. 1158

Sir: I have the honor to refer to instruction No. 727 of October 7, 1932, concerning the question of the citizenship of Miss Audrey M. Howe and to transmit herewith a copy of a note No. 156 of December the 16th, 1932, together with its enclosures, from the Secretary of State for External Affairs,66 in which it is stated that the question of oaths to be taken by teachers is a matter within the jurisdiction of the several provinces. The replies of certain of the provinces to an inquiry from the Department of External Affairs are attached herewith.66

In the case of Miss Audrey M. Howe, the Lieutenant-Governor of Alberta states that she took the oath of allegiance in 1929. He adds:

“Beyond this my Ministers have nothing further to add to the information already furnished.”

Respectfully yours,

Pierre de L. Boal
