Abstract
Encloses letter of Joseph Chiappe, American consul at Mogador. Barclay has informed him that he must look to the Office of Foreign Affairs for future instructions. A letter of introduction from the Emperor of Morocco to the Beys of Tunis and Tripoli is in the hands of Don Francisco Chiappe, Secretary to Joseph Chiappe. It may prove useful if future ne gotiations are necessary. Correspondence between Chiappe and Barclay indicates that Chiappe awaits instructions from Barclay, and is pressed by the Emperor, who has extended commercial concessions to American merchants. The Emperor is surprised that there has been no indication of the attitude of the U.S. toward his country since the conclusion of the treaty of commerce.
