Abstract

Referring to our telegram of even date, we have been endeavoring for the past 4 or 5 days to obtain shipping instructions from Hammer but with no success. We received 60 shipping tickets and three need to be tacked on to each case. The number we received would be sufficient for 20 cases but we have 35 cases ready to go forward. We have figured up and for safety believe that 150 should be sent to us (150 less 60). Have taken the liberty of signing your invoices in order that no delay will occur in the first consignment. Hammer sent some numbers to be placed on each case but we are still waiting on more. We have therefore used our best discretion to continue numbering them. We have to have full instructions at once if we are to get this material on board the steamer by Feb 15th. # Marginalia says answered 2/4/89
