JUDICIAL DECISIONS INVOLVING QUESTIONS OF INTER

NATIONAL LAW

AMERICAN AND BRITISH CLAIMS ARBITRATION TRIBUNAL

AWARD IN THE MATTER OF THE EASTRY

Claim No. 3

[Arbitrators: M. Henri Fromageot, Sir Charles Fitzpatrick, Hon.

Chandler P. Anderson]

Decision rendered May 1, 1914

This is a claim presented by His Britannic Majesty's Government on behalf of Messrs. Sivewright, Bacon and Co., of Manchester, England, against the Government of the United States for the sum of eight hundred forty-nine pounds eight shillings nine pence (£849/8/9) with interest at four per cent (4%) for nine and a half years, i. e., from December 9, 1902, the date on which His Majesty's Government first brought the claim to the notice of the United States Government, to April 26, 1912, the date of the confirmation of the first schedule of the Pecuniary Claims Convention, viz., three hundred twenty-three pounds (£323), making a total of one thousand one hundred and seventy-two pounds, eight shillings, nine pence (£1,172/8/9).
