Description

Letter from Sir A. Beverley Baxter to Mrs. Bishop regarding a war loan.

Inscription

[typed] 19 Oakwood Court,
W.14.
16th May 1960.

Dear Mrs. Bishop:

With reference to your visit to my headquarters at the last Advice Evening I wrote to the Chancellor of the Exchequer about the fall in the price of 3 1/2 per cent. War Loan, I now enclose a letter from the Economic Secretary to the Treasury explaining the situation. I am afraid this is rather long and complicated but it does give a clear picture of the Government's position. If you find it difficult to understand perhaps your Bank Manager could explain it to you.

I am sorry I have been unable to help you with your problem.

With kind regards,

Yours sincerely,

[handwritten] Beverley Baxter

[typed] Mrs. Bishop.
49 Harlech Road,
Palmers Green, N.
