THE AMENDMENT WILL BE REGARDED AS HAVING BEEN SUPPORTED BY VALUABLE CONSIDERATION FOR APPLICATION OF THE RETROACTIVE INCREASE TO SHIPMENTS IN STORAGE AT THE TRANSIT POINT. 37 COMP. 1958: FURTHER REFERENCE IS MADE TO YOUR LETTER OF SEPTEMBER 26. WHICH IS IN EFFECT A REQUEST FOR REVIEW OF THE DISALLOWANCE OF YOUR CLAIM FOR $390.55 ADDITIONAL FOR THE TRANSPORTATION OF THREE SHIPMENTS OF SMALL ARMS AMMUNITION FROM LAKE CITY. AT THE TIME YOUR CLAIM WAS DISALLOWED THE RECORD DID NOT REFLECT ANY VALID REASON FOR GIVING EFFECT TO THE RETROACTIVE PROVISIONS OF THIS AMENDMENT WHICH CURTAILED RIGHTS WHICH ACCRUED TO THE UNITED STATES ON THIS SHIPMENT PRIOR TO THE ISSUANCE OF THAT AMENDMENT. IT NOW APPEARS THAT THE ISSUANCE OF AMENDMENT NO. 61 TO SECTION 22 QUOTATION NO. 16-F WAS THE RESULT OF CERTAIN NEGOTIATIONS BETWEEN THE INTERESTED CARRIERS AND MILITARY PERSONNEL.
