The Diplomatic Agent and Consul General at Tangier (Blake) to the Secretary of State
[Received February 9.]
Sir: I have the honor to enclose herewith copy of a Note, dated January 9, 1940, which I have addressed to the Resident General of France at Rabat, as Foreign Minister of His Shereefian Majesty, in pursuance of Instruction No. 1054 of December 4, 19392 (File No. 681.006/67), reserving American treaty rights in relation to legislation introduced by the French Protectorate Government, incident to the present exceptional circumstances in French Morocco.
The general reservation formulated in my Note, follows as closely as possible the phraseology of the above mentioned Instruction, and will, I trust, be found by the Department, to meet the situation satisfactorily.
