Subject

Reactions after the Declaration of Greater Lebanon

Description

Washington, October 23, 1920.

“Mr. Moukarzel, President of the Lebanese in America, informed us that the American government did not yet receive official notification about Mount Lebanon now being a state independent from Syria and placed under the French mandate.
While the postal authorities accept only letters and parcels bearing the expression “Mount Lebanon-Syria," he asks for the intervention of the Embassy to let the federal post approve “Mount Lebanon" as an address.
May I proceed with this request?

Signed: Bearn.
