The Diplomatic Agent and Consul General at Tangier (White) to the Secretary of State

24. American Consul General Casablanca, has telegraphed me, but I infer not to the Department, to the effect that the Germans have been prevailed upon to agree to cessation of demobilization in French territory in this country because [apparent omission] do not wish Spanish advance there, also that the French naval forces in Morocco will cease convoying merchantmen and that convoys are returning.

While I am informed that Spanish officers in Tangier have recently been assigned the places they are to take in French Zone, the balance of evidence available does not yet point to an early invasion.
