Gentlemen,
I have to invite a reference to my letter No.G/46/515
of the l^th December, 1940., which related to the despatch to
your goodselves of a case containing two automatic pistols, which
originally arrived at this port by Parcels Post,
It was intended to send this package to you by Parcels
Post5 but the local Indian Post Office refused to accept this kind
of article for transmission. Consequantly the package was shipped
to you by steamer's freight, and left here on s.s. "Varela'' on loth
December= 1940 to Bombay, whence it Was on-carried to York by
the s.s. "President Jackson"'.
All the shipping charges were paid at this end; and
I have no doubt that you can satisfactorily arrange N ?jith your
Customs Authorities for the re-import of the pistols into the U.S.A
For this purpose, I enclose herewith by registered post,
Original Trfnshlpment BII j of Lading and the relative Lloyd's
Insurance Policy5 and would ask you kindly to aclnowledge the
safe receipt of same, and to intimate when the package has been
jl /
