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

1150. Department’s 433, June 15, 5 p.m. The substance of the Department’s 5, June 7, 6 p.m. to Tangier and Blake’s No. 11, June 16, noon, was communicated to Lagarde this afternoon. He was gratified to learn of the interpretation the Department had given Coursier’s explanation and also that the Residency General at Rabat had set principles aside and had made a responsive reply to Blake. He said that as far as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is concerned there is no need for further discussion at this time of the respective positions of the two Governments on matters of principle as the views of each had already been made sufficiently clear to provide for any contingency.

Repeated by wire to Tangier.
