J iThe American Note to (ireat Britain

| Washington, Jan. 27.?The text of
i the American protest to Great Britain
i against interference with neutral mails
i made public tonight reveals that dip I
lomatic and consular dispatches have
j been treated in a manner the United
States considered "vexatiously inquisi1
torial." The note describes the prac!
tices of Briiisxi officials as "unwar
j ranted interference,'' and in urgently
! requesting a prompt reply, points out
j that "a strong feeling is being aroused"
i in this country because of the loss of
| valuable letters, while foreign banks
i are refusing to cash American drafts
j because they have no assurances that
j drafts are secure in the mails.
The United States declares that the
I'&rce! post articles are entitled to the
exemptions of neutral trade and denies
tne right of Great Britain to take
neutral mail ships into British jurisdiction
for purposes of search and then

The American note is in the form of
a memorandum to Ambassador Page
at London instructing him to file "a
formal and 'vigorous protest." It is
dated January 4 and in part is as follows:
"The department can not admit the
right of British authorities to seize
neutral vessels plying directly between
American and European ports without;
touching at British ports to bring into j
port, and while there to remove or
censor mails carried by them. Modern
practice generally recognizes that)
mails are not to be censored, confiscated
or destroyed on high seas, even
