The Acting Secretary of State to the Minister in Siam ( Neville )

28. Department’s 24, November 1, 6 p.m. Please telegraph Department urgently whether Siamese Government has accepted immovable property provision. It is the earnest hope of the Department that this provision will be accepted. It represents long and careful study by the Department and the Department has given intensive attention thereto, especially during recent weeks, in order that the treaty may be ready for signature by November 6 as desired by the Siamese Government. We have expressed this view to the Siamese Minister here and desire that you, if you have not already done so, take similar action there.
