The Secretary of State to the British Chargé (Chilton)

Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your note No. 615 of July 25, 1923, informing me that the suggestion contained in my note of February 3, 1923, for the creation of a Niagara Control Board for the purpose of measuring and supervising the diversion of water from the Niagara River is agreeable to the Government of the Dominion of Canada and that it has appointed Mr. W. J. Stewart as its representative on the Board.

The information which you communicated was transmitted to the Secretary of War, who has informed me in reply that Major Paul S. Reinecke, Corps of Engineers, United States Army, 540 Federal Building, Buffalo, New York, has been appointed as the representative of the United States on this Board. I should be grateful if you would inform the Canadian Government of the appointment of Major Reinecke.

Accept [etc.]

Charles E. Hughes
