- 130, 515. 29 Balance due State of New York Feb. 16, 1923..

. 398, 823. 67 The foregoing statement is made on the basis used by the Comptroller of the Treasury in the settlement of the claim of the State of Pennsylvania referred to in Senate resolution of December 6, 1922, which appears to leave no discretion in this office in the determination of the amount due the State except in accordance with the basis therein indicated.

In this connection attention is properly invited to the fact that the State of New York is shown on the books of the Treasury Department to be indebted to the United States in the sum of $4,014,520.71 arising on account of amount deposited with said State per section 13 of the act of Congress approved June 23, 1836 (5 Stat. 55), amended by the act of October 2, 1837 (5 Stat. 201), postponing repayments until otherwise directed by Congress. The act of June 25, 1910 (36 Stat. 776), authorized credit to be given the Treasurer of the United States for the amounts with which he had been charged on account of the moneys advanced to various States under the act of 1836, but provided that said States shall be debited with the amounts of their indebtedness as provided in the act of June 23, 1836, until otherwise directed by Congress. The debt of the State of New York is therefore carried on the books of the Treasury Department as an outstanding indebtedness of said State in accordance with the aforesaid act. Whether there should now be an adjustment of these respective accounts between the State of New York and the United States is, of course, for the consideration and direction of the Congress. Respectfully,

J. R. McCue, Comptroller General.
