481.11/137: Telegram

The Chargé in France (Wilson) to the Secretary of State

1117. Department’s No. 5, June 7, 6 p.m., to Tangier. In the event the Resident General has not yet replied to Blake’s note of June 2 (see Blake’s despatch No. 1458, June 2 [3]58), would the Department have any objection to the Embassy revealing informally to the Foreign Office the tenor of the telegram referred to above? This suggestion is made in view of the possibility that the Resident General may not fully understand that Coursier’s explanation has made further discussion of the respective positions of the two Governments unnecessary and that the way is therefore clear for immediate examination of the claims.

Repeated by telegraph to Tangier.
