Excerpt from Remarks of Hon. James D. Phelan, of California, in the Senate of the United States: August 14 and 15, 1917 The information we requested should have been in our hands within two hours after the request if this program was really ready for serious consideration. To our surprise we learned Tuesday that the contracts to be offered on the previous day had never been drawn up, and that in the two months since we had agreed on the commandeering plan, no careful calculations Of its cost had been made nor had there even been obtained copies of the existing construction contracts of the ships he proposed to commandeer. We requested that the fabricating contracts should be drawn up in at least the form in which Gen. Goethals had said he would Offer them, and be submitted to us for our approval. A blank draft reached us Wednesday. A copy follows. It tells its own story. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
