, August 31,
[Received September 24.]
Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the
receipt of the Department’s instruction No. 243 of July 27, 1937,
instructing the Legation to institute negotiations looking to the
conclusion of an extradition treaty between the United States and
Egypt, using as a basis therefor the draft treaty which was sent to
the Legation by the Department on June 4, 1931.
There is enclosed herewith a copy of the Legation’s Note to the
Foreign Office, dated August 30, 1937, transmitting anew the draft
treaty received in 1931 and expressing the hope that early
consideration might be given to the conclusion of such a treaty.
The Legation will not fail to transmit to the Department any reply
which may be received to this Note, and will endeavor to obtain an
answer at an early date.

Your Excellency’s attention is invited to the fact that the
enclosed draft is the same as that submitted to the Royal
Ministry by this Legation in its Note No. 100, of June 27, 1931,
at which time the Legation requested that consideration be given
to the conclusion of an extradition treaty. The former
negotiations were terminated in 1933. In view of the changed
conditions now existing in Egypt, it is hoped that Your
Excellency may concur in my Government’s belief that the
conclusion of an extradition treaty between the two countries at
an early date becomes desirable.
I have [etc.]
