Mr. S. Topping,

Dear Mr. Topping,
CLOTHING FOR SPANISH REFUGEES.
Further to our conversation on the telephone this afternoon, I am enclosing herewith two lists showing particulars of two consignments of clothing which have been forwarded to you for conveyance to Rouen. As you will see, these consignments comprise 20 packages marked B.W. 1 to B.W. 20, and 5 packages marked LL. 1. to LL. 5.
I shall be glad if you will be good enough to let me know as early as possible the name of the steamer by which the goods will be conveyed, and the date of sailing, in order that we may advise the International Federation of Trade Unions, Paris.
With many thanks for your help,
