Dear Dr. Lisicky:

With further reference to what I said in the meeting of the Commission on 3rd instance in the matter of postal arrangement which are at present being made in Palestine, the enclosed clipping from the Palcor News Bulletin (a Palestinian news service) may be found to be of some interest.

Whilst I believe the information to be credible, it h not been officially confirmed yet.

I am, dear Dr. Lisicky,


Yours sincerely,
