His Britannic Majesty’s Consul-General,
In consideration of your consenting to the delivery to us of the rubber specified on page 1 which we have purchased from
hereby give you the following undertaking, which shall remain in force so long as Great Britain is at war with any European power:
We will not export from the United States any raw rubber, reclaimed rubber, or waste rubber, whether the same has been imported from the British Dominions or not, otherwise than to the United Kingdom or to a British Possession.
We will not sell the rubber now delivered by you to any dealer or other person or persons in the United States, but will use it for our own manufacturing purposes.[Page 665]
All orders received by us for manufactured or partly manufactured rubber goods to be sent to neutral European countries shall be executed from stocks maintained by us in the United Kingdom, or be executed by shipments to the United Kingdom and reshipment from there, under licence to be obtained for export therefrom.
We will not execute any orders for manufactured or partly manufactured rubber goods to be sent, either directly or indirectly, to any country or state at war with Great Britain.
We will not sell any manufactured or partly manufactured rubber goods to any person in the United States without satisfying ourselves that there is no intention on his part to export, or resell the same for exportation, to any countries in Europe other than Great Britain, France, Russia, or Italy, otherwise than by shipping to the United Kingdom and reshipping from there, under licence to be obtained for export therefrom.
If we export any manufactured or partly manufactured rubber goods to a destination outside Europe not being in a British Possession, we will, prior to or simultaneously with the shipment, give you particulars of the goods so shipped and their destination.
All rubber tyres exported by us or sold by us for export shall bear a distinctive name or mark, which we will communicate to you, so as to identify them as being our manufacture.
