THE WHITE HOUSE,

Washington, February 27, 1923. The PRESIDENT OF THE SENATE:

The necessity for the appropriations asked is explained in the letter of the Director of the Bureau of the Budget, transmitted herewith, in whose conclusions and observations thereon I concur. Respectfully,

These claims are debts of the Government, the validity of which has been approved, including an appropriation heretofore made by Congress to meet them.
