The Ambassador in France (Herrick) to the Secretary of State

43. L–315 [from Herrick, Kellogg and Logan]. Reference Department’s L–196.31 Subparagraph 2 (b) our L–312 (see our L–312)32 provides specifically “that the Agreement of May 25, 1923” (in other words specifically the Wadsworth Agreement) “does not apply to payments on account of reparation by any ex-enemy powers other than Germany”. Will be seen by this that only waiver we have made is waiver under Wadsworth Agreement for claims such as example the Bulgarian moneys33 and in no way affects the rights we have under our treaties with Austria, Hungary and Turkey. Herrick, Kellogg, Logan.
