Bahrain,' P. Gulf
With reference to my conversation this
morning regarding the weight of American cigarettes,
I have gone through the records, and enclosed here
with you will find a packing list from which it will
be realized that the net weight of 10,000 cigarettes
is 24 6/16 lbs but with the packing material, a case
containing 10,000 cigarettes weighs 48 Lbs. On basis
of this 1,500,000 cigarettes (gross) will weigh 7200
Lbs. or roughly 3^ tons; and hence the details of my
applications in question tally right.
