1. My 62, December 16, noon, and the Department’s 50, December 23, noon [6 p.m.]. Yesterday Hart and Clapp and the Iranian [Page 736] Government signed two concession agreements, one relating to oil exploration and development, the other to construction and operation of pipe line.

It proved unnecessary to act on paragraph 3 of No. 50. Crain22 was present in a purely notarial capacity.
