The Department of State requests the decision of the Comptroller General in regards to the tenure under lease s-356-fa-2, entered into on February 12, 1932, for the Secretary of State by American Consul at Tunis, Tunisia, and Mrs. J. Lachnums as agent for Mrs. Henry-Raymond Malinet for the quarters occupied by the American Consulate at Tunis.

Accordingly, while the subject lease was executed on February 12, 1932, prior to the statutory authority contained in the act of July 1, 1932, and subsequent acts, in view of all the circumstances this office is not required to question the continuation of the lease in effect until December 31, 1941 unless terminated prior to that date.
