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

293. For Cole from Murphy. I am scheduled to depart October 4 and hope to arrive Tangier October 6. Delay due to clipper trouble. Would like 2 days in Morocco and plan to proceed then to Algiers.

There is substantial reason for them to be reassured. Please endeavor to convey my feeling that there is cause for the greatest optimism and that the group’s careful plans and hard work will achieve the hoped for result. [Murphy.]
