The Minister in Egypt (Fish) to the Secretary of State

13. My telegram No. 6, January 18, 1 p.m.5 Supplementary Egyptian note received this morning. Full translation about 800 words is being telegraphed through London today. The note deals only with the Mixed Courts regime.

As anticipated the Egyptians have requested more than they hope to obtain. Childs6 is acquainted with the minimum Egypt will accept and to which Great Britain will consent. However, Beckett advised me that one change occurred subsequent to Childs’ departure. It is with reference to the substitution of Egyptian judges in the Mixed Courts of First Instance to which Great Britain will consent, the details of which will be communicated to the Department by the British Embassy in Washington.

  2. J. Rives Childs, Secretary of Legation in Egypt, recently assigned to the Department.
