1677. Mitchell-Bissell Company, New York, have 153 cases porcelain guides for textile machinery at Rotterdam contracted but not paid for prior March 1. Unless these guides can be procured textile industries will suffer. This company sole importers of these guides [Page 262] which have no substitute and cannot be procured elsewhere. Most important that our textile industries shall have them. Unofficially, informally, and discreetly ascertain whether permit can be obtained for shipment from Rotterdam.
