FEDERAL RESERVE OF NEW BANK YORK Fiscal A g e n t o f the U n i t e d States Circular No. 2 8 6 0 1 November I, 1944 J C UNITED STATES WAR SAVINGS BONDS, SERIES E Amendment to Instructions to Issuing Agents To All Issuing Agents in the Second Federal Reserve District Qualified for Sale of United States War Savings Bonds, Series E: Our Circular No. 2790, dated April 21, 1944, containing revised instructions to issuing agents qualified for sale of United States Savings Bonds, Series E, includes on page 7 a section relating to reimbursement for postage and registry fees expended by issuing agents. This section provides, in part, that in the case of certain packages sent as insured mail to be treated as registered mail, postage should be paid at the fourth-class (parcel post) rate in addition to an insurance fee of 30 cents on each shipping unit. As the result of the amendment of certain provisions of the Revenue Act of 1943, domestic insurance fees on insured mail treated as registered mail have been reduced as of November 1, 1944. Accordingly, the insurance fee to be paid hereafter on packages mailed in accordance with the instructions referred to above will be 15 cents on each shipping unit instead of 30 cents. ALLAN SPROUL, President.
