The Representative on the Allied
Commission on Reparations (Pauley) to the Secretary of
My Dear Mr. Secretary: I am in receipt of a copy of a letter sent by Sir David Waley of the British Delegation to Mr. Maisky. The letter to him states that he accepts the American Plan2 with a slight amendment clarifying “as a first charge” and adding “the needs of occupying forces”. These amendments are satisfactory to our Delegation.
