File No. 763.72112/1179

The Commercial Adviser of the British Embassy (Crawford) to the Foreign Trade Adviser of the Department of State (Rose)

Dear Mr. Rose : With reference to the claims submitted through your office relating to goods bought and paid for prior to March 1, I think that inasmuch as the British Government have fixed June 15 as the latest date under which goods of enemy origin may be shipped from neutral ports under the special permits which may be issued in the cases submitted through your office, it might be desirable that claimants should be informed of this when they present their cases for consideration.

Goods shipped after June 15 would come under the procedure laid down in Article 4 of the order in council of March 11.

Yours very truly,

R. F. Crawford
