File No. 763.72112/1891
C. W. Leavitt and Company to the Secretary of State
Dear Sir: We received from Messrs. A. Karlson, Metall and Maskin Aktiebolag, Stockholm, Sweden, an order for 25 tons of copper, but the different steamship companies refuse to accept copper without a British Admiralty certificate.
As you will note by the enclosed certificate from the Royal Consulate General of Sweden of New York, duly viséed by the British. Consulate General of New York, this material is intended for exclusive use in Sweden.
Would it be possible for your Department to discuss this matter with the British Ambassador, and thus obtain for our account the required British Admiralty certificate?
We are mailing a copy of this letter to the Honorable Ambassador of Sweden at Washington, and any assistance that you may be able to render us in this matter will be greatly appreciated.
