  "In conformity with the practice generally adopted in regard to
extradition, the Royal Egyptian Government intends to adopt judicial
procedure in this matter. It will therefore be necessary for the Mixed
Tribunal to pronounce upon the regularity of the request for extradi-
tion when such request relates to a foreigner within the jurisdiction of
the said Tribunal."
  Should you be of the opinion that the quoted language of the Decla-
ration should be incorporated in the treaty or referred to therein you
will please so inform the Department before beginning negotiations,
stating your grounds for such opinion.
  Very truly yours,                    For the Secretary of State:
                                               R. WALTON MooRE

  SIR: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of the Depart-
ment's instruction No. 243 of July 27, 1937, instructing the Legation
to institute negotiations looking to the conclusion of an extradition
treaty between the United States and Egypt, using as a basis therefor
the draft treaty which was sent to the Legation by the Department
on June 4, 1931.
  There is enclosed herewith a copy of the Legation's Note to the For-
eign Office, dated August 30, 1937, transmitting anew the draft treaty
received in 1931 and expressing the hope that early consideration
might be given to the conclusion of such a treaty.
  The Legation will not fail to transmit to the Department any reply
which may be received to this Note, and will endeavor to obtain an
answer at an early date.
  Respectfully yours,                                 BERT FISH

  EXCELLENCY: I have the honor, acting under instructions from my
