The Secretary of State to the Consul General at Algiers (Cole)

134. Your 235, June 10, 4 p.m. For Murphy. The Department fully approves the disposition you have made of the Vice Consuls. In view of the statement made to you by General Weygand’s diplomatic officer, they should devote themselves, pending the entry into effect of the economic plan, to such matters as investigating the situation with respect to German infiltration. Reports on this and related subjects would be of great interest to the Departments

Your suggestions concerning the courier service will be dealt with in a separate telegram.
