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

264. Embassy’s telegram No. 240, February 18, 8 [9] p.m. Consul at Havre reports that the 17 planes which arrived on the steamer Waalhaven have been sold to the Société Française de Transports Aeriens which will instruct what disposition is to be made of them.

Upon investigation it appears that this company was formed in September last year with a capital of 100,000 francs and that its present manager is Edouard Godillot (see Embassy’s telegram No. 70, January 16, 3 p.m.) with offices in Paris. The firm has a doubtful reputation.
