French Delegation with the Armistice Commission Report on conversation (interview) between Mr. Hemmen and Mr. De Boisanger, 4 October at 1100 hours. Mr. Hemmen — In our last conversation I indicated to you that the question of the line of demarcation could be considered settled. What concerns the foreign exchange [devisen] and the goods we shall surely find an accord. For persons and the postal service we are giving you great facilities. In the question of commissars I likewise suppose we are going to reach an agreement. There is still a great difficulty regarding the control by the Italians. There remains the question of the payment agreement. What answer do you bring me? Mr. De Boisanger — You yourself had to let me know about the outcome of your steps [demarches] concerning the rate of the mark. Mr. Hemmen — I could not obtain any result. I did all I could; they did not listen to me. The rate of 20 francs must be considered final. One must not speak about it any more. Mr. De Boisanger — This answer is very disappointing after all the efforts made in order to show you our desire of collaboration. Mr. Hemmen — You must not come back to the question of the mark. If you now refuse to conclude the payment agreement [clearing agreement] we might just as well stop everything. I will let the Fuehrer know of it and will have no facilities whatsoever.
