Editorial Note

The document that follows contains information relevant to the position of the United States on the delimitation of inland waters and the marginal sea. It is appropriate to print it here, although it carries the date of November 13, 1951, for it is based on precedents extending no farther than 1930, and it sets forth ample and relevant information on positions taken by various governments on this question at the Conference for the Codification of International Law held at The Hague in 1930.
