The Ambassador in France ( Herrick ) to the Secretary of State
[Received 4:03 p.m.]
445. [From Hill.] H–184. Department’s H–94.19
1st. Have sent Commission letter embodying substance of paragraphs 2, 3 and 4 and also stating, as indicated in the Department’s H–80, October 1st,20 that when in a position to do so my Government will furnish Commission with accounting for tankers. Did not embody statement contained in paragraph 1 of Department’s telegram, since our position has already been made clear and since [Page 200] Legal Service has unanimously decided that we have right to be reimbursed expenses properly incurred in management of fleet of tankers out of earnings of fleet taken as a whole.
