SIAM
PROPOSED REVISION OF THE TREATY OF FRIENDSHIP AND COM-
MERCE BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES AND SIAM, SIGNED DE-
CEMBER 16, 19201
711.922/48
         The Siamese Legation to the Department of State
  This Legation has received instructions to inquire :
  (1) Whether the United States Government will consent to re-
place the present article 3 of the treaty 2 by the counter-draft of the
new article 33 which Dr. Stanley K. Hornbeck4 handed to Mr.
Stevens,5 and to leave all the other articles to be revised at the time
of the general revision of our treaties with various countries in 1936
because the other articles are also found in other treaties whereas the
present article 3 containing the general prohibition for the establish-
ment of monopolies is found in the American treaty alone;
  (2) What form the supplementary agreement shall take?; and
  (3) What form of authority is required for signing the agreement?
  With regard to question (2), this Legation understands that the
modification desired could be made in the form of exchange of notes,
and as to question (3), is the proposed agreement to be signed in
Washington or in Bangkok, and is it presumed that the Plenipotenti-
aries have to be provided with full powers for signing the agreement?
