The Assistant Secretary of State (Clayton) to the Representative on the Allied Commission on Reparations (Pauley)

Memorandum for Ambassador Pauley

The attached memorandum for U. S. Group CC1 raises certain questions regarding restitution of art objects.

I believe that we might concur in recommendations 1 and 2, and I should like your comments on recommendation 3. It too would seem acceptable, subject to your views on “replacement” as against straight restitution of art objects.

It would be desirable if we could get off a joint memorandum on this subject to General Clay.
