BULGARIA
REJECTION BY BULGARIA OF A DRAFT TREATY PROPOSED BY THE
UNITED STATES
711.74119/1 a,-
The Secretary of State to the Minister in Bulgaria (Wilson)
No. 1                        WASHINGTON, December 9, 1921.
SIR: As you are aware the Treaty of Neuilly was signed on
November 27, 1919 by the representatives of the Governments of
the United States and Bulgaria.' This Treaty, however, was not
ratified on the part of the United States. It has, therefore, been
deemed expedient, in view of the desirability of promoting friendly
relations, as well as to encourage commercial intercourse between the
two countries, to conclude a treaty between the two countries which
shall embody such portions of the Treaty of Neuilly as would seem
appropriate to the accomplishment of the above mentioned purposes.
The draft of such treaty is herewith transmitted to you.
You are directed to present this draft to the Minister of Foreign
Affairs of Bulgaria for the consideration of his Government, and
should it be found acceptable to that Government, you will sign the
treaty with the Bulgarian plenipotentiary. The President's full
power authorizing you to do so is enclosed.2
Should any modifications in the draft be proposed by the Bul-
garian Government, you will submit them to the Department for
its consideration and await its reply.
I am [etc.]                           CHARLES E. HUGHES
