IMPORTANT INFORMATION RELATING TO WAR SAVINGS STAMPS

To Qualified Agents for the Issuance of
War Savings Bonds, Series E :
We have been advised by the Treasury Department that on September
30, 1942, the liability for the outstanding War Savings Stamps was transĀ­
ferred from the Postal Savings System to the Treasury, as a public debt
obligation, pursuant to Section 5 of the Public Debt Act of 1942. The transĀ­
fer involves no change in the handling of transactions in the stamps by
the Postal Service. Any agents receiving such stamps in payment for
Series E bonds should redeem the stamps for cash as heretofore, at post
offices, or, where this is not feasible, they may forward the stamps to this
bank or to one of its branches located at El Paso, Houston, and San Antonio,
at their own risk and expense, for credit.
Yours very truly,
R .R , GILBERT
President
