IMPORTANT NOTICE

AMENDMENT TO INSTRUCTIONS TO QUALIFIED ISSUING AGENTS
OF WAR SAVINGS BONDS, SERIES E, RELATIVE TO MAILING
OF ORIGINAL STUBS, BONDS AND REMITTANCES

To Qualified Issuing Agents for the Issuance of
War Savings Bonds, Series E :
We have been advised by the Treasury Department, Washington, D. C.,
of a change relative to the mailing to this bank and its branches of remit­
tances covering the sale of War Savings Bonds with original stubs and
spoiled bonds.
The Treasury Department advises that the Post Office Department
points out that remittances, whether in the form of checks, drafts or sav­
ings stamps, are first-class matter, and should be mailed separately with
postage and not enclosed with your report on Form FA-82, and, when nec­
essary, registry fees and surcharges paid accordingly. If remittances are
included with shipments of stubs, etc., the entire shipment should be
handled as first-class matter instead of fourth-class matter.
In view of this ruling, you are requested to discontinue enclosing remit­
tances with shipments of stubs and bonds handled as insured mail at the
fourth-class rate of postage. Remittances may, of course, be enclosed with
shipments weighing less than eight ounces when the first-class mail rate,
registry fees, and surcharges are applicable to the entire shipment.
The instructions contained in our circular letter of August 25, 1942, are
hereby amended in this respect.
