Our library has just received nos. 18 and 19 of vol. 1 of "The Blast." We should like very much to secure the earlier numbers and to have you send us later numbers as they are issued. In the hope that you will be willing to do this I am enclosing a penalty label under which the missing numbers may be sent without postage and an envelope for your reply which also needs no postage. Our correct address is as follows: U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Washington, D.C.
I am, very truly yours,
Commisioner of Labor Statistics.
