195 Code/7

The Acting Secretary of State to the National Recovery Administration

Attention: Mr. Joseph Scott

Sirs: Reference is made to your letter dated November 7, 1933,5 concerning the public hearing on the general shipping code proposed by the American Steamship Owners Association which was held in the auditorium of the Department of Commerce Building on November 9 and 10, 1933, and to this Department’s letter dated November 8, 1933, designating a representative of this Department to attend the hearing.

On account of the important bearing which the provisions of the proposed code will apparently have on foreign vessels carrying on operations in American ports, I shall appreciate it if you will be so good as to have the code as finally proposed for the shipping industry transmitted to this Department for consideration before it is sent to the President for his approval.

Very truly yours,

For the Acting Secretary of State:
William Phillips
