145. Instruct Dawson Dantzig to apply to High Commissioner for Free City of Dantzig for recognition for himself and Halstead as Consul and Vice-Consul respectively. See Dawson’s letter January 2, 1920, to you. As High Commissioner cannot of right refuse recognition to American Consular Officers, it is understood that such application is mere formality.

Report promptly to Department conclusion of treaty between Poland and Dantzig provided for by Article 104 of German treaty, as according to Despatch No. 80 [8] of December 29, 1919, from American Commissioner, Dantzig,2 such treaty will give Poland power to grant exequaturs to foreign consuls at Dantzig.
