Reference is made to letter of November 30, 1948, with enclosures, from the Assistant Secretary of the Army, presenting for consideration the proposed settlement by the Department of the Army of a claim in favor of Harry A. Knox for the infringement of certain patents owned by him relating to the construction of military tanks and assemblies therefore.

In the circumstances, and since the interpretation placed on their own language by the drafters of an agreement must be given great weight, especially where the contracting parties are in agreement as to the true meaning, we perceive no basis for interposing an objection to the execution of the Patent Release Contract and the payment of the consideration covered thereby.
