Date4 June 1926
DescriptionAsks for a change of procedure to make annual contributions to 6 International Unions in French Francs instead of the equivalent Pounds Sterling. This is due to the objections made by the recipents as the full amount of Francs required were not met [after the exchange] last year. Gives a list of the addresses of the Unions [not enclosed] and that 3 are based in England, 2 in Belgium and 1 in France. States that the sums are between 1600 to 20800 Francs.
