No. 31

Sir: I have the honor to state, in reply to your note dated October 12, 1917,1 relative to the Swiss Government’s need of cavalry horses, that the War Trade Board, to whom the matter was referred for consideration, informs me under date of October 31, 1917, that the matter was satisfactorily arranged at a personal conference between yourself and Dr. Alonzo Taylor, of the War Trade Board, upon the basis of an exportation to Switzerland of 1,700 horses per annum.
