File No. 763.72111/4703

The Counselor for the Department of State ( Polk ) to the French Ambassador ( Jusserand )

My Dear Mr. Ambassador: I have just had a letter from the Acting Secretary of the Treasury on the subject of your suggestion that the name of the port of destination be omitted from export declarations.1 He states that he finds upon inquiry that the name of the country of destination of merchandise is all that is really necessary, and has therefore given instructions to accept declarations with the name of the port of destination omitted if the country of destination is given.

Believe me [etc.]

Frank L. Polk
