Accordingly, the Treasury Department will be required to reimburse the Post Office Department for the cost of handling Savings Bonds mailed by issuing agents to the purchasers thereof in special penalty envelopes where over-the-counter delivery is not practicable. The amount of such reimbursement will be estimated on the basis of the number of special penalty envelopes furnished to issuing agents. In these circumstances, the Treasury Department requests all issuing agents to which penalty envelopes are furnished to use such envelopes in the most economical manner possible and to keep spoilage of the envelopes at a minimum. Your cooperation in this respect will be appreciated. ALLAN SPKOUL, President.
