Draft Memorandum by the Assistant
Secretary of State (
Memorandum for General Clay
We request that you urge the Control Council to adopt the attached proposed principle on restitution to supplement the economic principles and the reparation agreement approved by the heads of Government.
- Pauley reported to Byrnes on August 10 that this memorandum “was not officially given to General Clay but [was] discussed with him and we mutually decided that in its presently proposed form it was incomplete and in view of the circumstances concerning the reparations agreement we should before taking definite action on a proposed definition on policy concerning restitution get the advice of other countries concerned in both restitution and reparation.” (File No. 740.00119 E. W./8–1045)↩
- Space was provided for Pauley’s signature also, but Pauley did not sign the draft memorandum. See footnote 1, supra. ↩
