Elcano engaged in target practice at Hankow, China, on March 26, 1923), and requesting that I indicate whether the action proposed in the report is in harmony with the financial policy of the President.

In reply I have to advise you that the proposed request for legislation authorizing an appropriation of $1,100 for the purpose stated is not in conflict with the financial program of the President. Very truly yours,

S. S. Elcano while engaged in target practice at Hankow, China, on March 26, 1923). This report was transmitted by you to the Congress on April 23, 1924, with the recommendation that in order to effect a settlement of these claims in accordance with the recommendation of the Secretary of State the Congress, as an act of grace and without reference to the legal liability of the United States in the premises, authorize an appropriation in the sum of $1,100.
