ALL COMMUNICATIONS MUST BE ADDRESSED TO THE GENERAL SECRETARY
Mr.H.V.Tewson, May 26th 1939
Trades Union Congress,
Transport House, Smith Square,
Dear Mr. Tewson,
I beg to acknowledge receipt of your letter of the 23rd instant with cheque enclosed for £390. in settlement of the accounts in respect of the payments to Spanish Seamen for the period closing May 13th 1939.
I appreciate very much the sentiments expressed in your letter to the officers of the Union for making arrangements in respect of these payments, and I think you will appreciate we did our best under very difficult circumstances.
I am sure I do not envy you dealing with these matters, and I hope that the Trades Union Congress will succeed in getting these Spanish refugee seamen repatriated to some approved domicile outside the United Kingdom.
Assisted General Secretary
