Paris Peace Conf. 184.023/8
General Tasher H. Bliss to Brigadier General C. H. McKinstry
My Dear General McKinstry: I find a pencil note on my desk signed by Colonel Grant, saying that you would like to be notified as to who is going to make an estimate as to what Germany can afford to pay.
I do not know whether the United States has committed itself affirmatively to the resolution that is understood was passed by a conference in London two or three weeks ago to the effect that each of the interested Powers would make a separate investigation of this.
I think that Colonel House is more closely connected with this question than anyone else of the American Mission, and I suggest that you take the matter up with him.
