The Secretary of State to the Chargé in Mexico (Boal)

100. Your telegram No. 93, June 16. This Government’s proposal contemplates submission on June 30 of one blanket memorial, without evidence of any kind, merely listing all claims not memorialized on the merits, in order that on the basis of that blanket memorial the cases incorporated therein may be “heard and decided” for the purpose of Article VIII of the General Claims Convention of 1923.

This would involve no investigations or procedure of any kind except decisions by the Commission on the bases of that one document and the corresponding original notices of claims, called memoranda.
