File No. 763.72112/1432

The Postmaster General ( Burleson ) to the Secretary of State

Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 26th instant, enclosing a copy of a letter from Frank A. Page, Industrial Trust Building, Providence, Rhode Island, relative to the importation by parcel post from Germany of articles of German origin.2

[Page 733]

In reply, I have to inform you that the parcel-post service is in operation between the United States and Germany, the parcel-post mails for and from Germany being dispatched via Rotterdam.

The Department has no reason to believe that parcel-post mails from Germany for this country or from this country for Germany have been interfered with by any intervening country.

By direction of the Postmaster General.

Very respectfully,

A. A. Fisher

Acting Second Assistant Postmaster General
