The Chargé at Tangier (Childs) to the Secretary of State
[Received March 13.]
Sir: I have the honor to refer to my despatch No. 640 of February 25  enclosing a proposed aide-mémoire to be left with my Spanish colleague in reply to his informal request for our acceptance of the so-called “Social Belief Tax” and to state that upon reflection a revised draft aide-mémoire has been prepared a copy of which is enclosed, which it is believed better suits the situation.[Page 490]
It would be appreciated if, in the event the Department approved this proposed draft reply that telegraphic authorization be given the Legation.
