No. 10.
General Schenck to Mr. Fish.


Granville desires me to send change of language of his proposal, as follows: After word “June,” substitute “that the United States do not ask the Arbitrators to admit or take into their consideration these indirect claims, either as elements for the determination of any one sum in gross which they may award in case of decision against Great Britain on the point of liability for any of the vessels, or otherwise; and that in case of damages being referred to assessors, they will not bring forward these claims before the assessors.”

This variation of words does not seem to me to change meaning.
