[Received January 3—2:15 p.m.]
3. B–820. As a result formal notice from! Textile Alliance its cessation dyestuff purchases Commission decided distribute between Great Britain, France, Italy and Belgium percentage dyes formerly taken by Textile.
Decision states if later United States Government propose to resume dyestuff orders Commission will reexamine the question. Informally seems taken for granted United States can start again whenever ready. In this connection we call your attention to delay which will ensue between time when you actually ready start and time when your orders will really become effective such delay resulting necessarily from procedure governing orders and allotments. Boyden.
