The Secretary of State to the American Delegate ( Wilson )

468. Your No. 969, January 29, 5 p.m. It was our understanding that the amendment of Category V, as suggested in the instruction of December 24,26 taken in conjunction with the amended text of Article 30 (e) authorized in that instruction provided for the inspection on the spot for production of civil aviation material for which the French contend. Do the French desire something more than this? If so, please submit by telegram, for my consideration, such modifications of the present text of the Draft Articles as would be necessary to carry out their ideas.
