The Minister in Siam ( Neville ) to the Secretary of State
[Received October 9—5:50 a.m.]
27. Department’s 17, September 16, 5  p.m. Copies not received. Foreign Office tells me informally that the Siamese have completed their study of the two American treaty drafts and wish to discuss them. Foreign Office states most treaties except British and American are pretty close to final revision and desires to know whether I am prepared to take up the matter including land clause. I stated that I was without instructions.
