TO MISS FLORENCE SIMENHOFF:

YOUR LETTER OF JUNE 23, 1959, REQUESTS REVIEW OF OUR SETTLEMENT OF MAY 28, 1959, WHICH DISALLOWED YOUR CLAIM FOR $175 WHICH, YOU SAY, REPRESENTS THE UNAPPLIED BALANCE OF WAR BOND PAYROLL DEDUCTIONS AND CASH DEPOSITS BY YOU PRIOR TO YOUR SEPARATION FROM SERVICE UNDER THE WAR SHIPPING ADMINISTRATION AND THE UNITED STATES MARITIME COMMISSION.

CAREFUL CONSIDERATION HAS BEEN GIVEN YOUR CLAIM. HOWEVER, THE PHOTOSTATIC COPY OF YOUR INDIVIDUAL EARNINGS RECORD DURING THE PERIOD IN QUESTION, SEPTEMBER 1, 1944, THROUGH JUNE 30, 1945, SHOWS THAT PAYROLL DEDUCTIONS TOTALING $860 WERE MADE FROM YOUR SALARY. THAT SUM PLUS THE CASH DEPOSITS YOU MADE OF $25 AND $40 AMOUNTED TO $925. OF THAT SUM, $750 WAS USED ON APRIL 30, 1945, TO ISSUE BOND NO. M 6,910,412-E TO YOU. THE DEDUCTION OF $50 IN PAY PERIOD ENDING APRIL 30, 1945, WAS COMBINED WITH THE $25 CASH DEPOSIT TO PROCURE BOND NO. C 91,758,867-E ($75) ON MAY 24, 1945. THE CASH DEPOSIT OF $40 BY YOU ON MAY 23, 1945 AND THE $60 DEDUCTION DURING PAY PERIOD ENDING MAY 31, 1945 (TOTALING $100) WERE "REFUNDED" TO YOU, ACCORDING TO THE PAY RECORDS WE HAVE.

THEREFORE, AS THE RECORD, INCLUDING THE EXHIBITS FURNISHED BY YOU, DOES NOT INDICATE THAT ANY AMOUNT IS DUE YOU, WE CAN ONLY SUSTAIN THE DISALLOWANCE OF YOUR CLAIM.
