File No. 300.115/28385

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

Dear Mr. Fleming : With reference to your letter of the 23d instant regarding the voucher or guarantee that would be required, by the British Government on applications from universities, colleges, and public bodies for permits to bring forward scientific or educational works in German, I am to inform you that no more would he required than that every such application should have an endorsement by the official authority appointed that he is satisfied that the application is genuine, that the volumes for which application is made are in fact intended for the use of that institution.

I should be glad if you would be so kind as to let me know in due course whether the Librarian of Congress would be willing to undertake this service.

Yours very truly,

R. F. Crawford
