Mr. Sherman to Mr. Draper.

No. 121.]

Sir: I inclose copy of a letter from the Secretary of Agriculture, transmitting a copy of one from the Armour Packing Company, of Kansas City, Mo., asking whether there are any restrictions governing the importation of fresh meats into Italy, and whether they can be shipped in bond through Genoa into Switzerland.

He also requests information as to the Italian duties on meats.

The Department will be glad to have a report which will serve to answer the inquiries.

Respectfully, yours,

John Sherman.
