the following proposed changes, deletions and additions:
  Article III After the word "other" on the fourth line insert
the
word "lawfully."
  Article IV After the allowance of the term of 3 years to dispose
of real property as contemplated under this article, what are the cir-
cumstances under which a further prolongation would seem desirable,
and what additional period would be regarded a reasonable pro-
longation?

made or may in future be made with any third state; and treaties to
facilitate the payment of foreign debts.
9 Latter not printed.
