March 28,1924

Addressed to:
Hon. Reed Smoot, Chairman,
Committee on Finance, U.S.Senate.

 

Sir:

I have the honor to enclose herewith a memorandum showing the estimated cost of the bonus as proposed by the bill H.R. 7959 on account of officers and enlisted men of the United States Marine Corps.

These figures will be found slightly at variance with those given to the Committee yesterday, which is explained by the fact that the latter were compiled in 1922 under the provisions of the Fordney bill, which differed in some respects from the bill now pending.

 

Very respectfully,
Signed by Rufus H. Lane
Brigadier General, Adjutant & Inspector,
U.S. Marine Corps.
