    Translation
    • German Consulate for British India Calcutta J. No. 2217 9 July 1935 Following the letter of 21 June 1935 According to the Consulate in Bombay, you approached them in late February or early March of this year and addressed the matter you mentioned in your letter. You were told there that the consulate had no obligations to fulfil, but that you would be assisted in recovering the money [owed] by Sichler and Mesdag. Reimbursing you through the Deutsche Hilfsverein [German Aid Association] for the amount paid out for Mesdag would be out of the question as the person involved is a Dutch citizen. The Consulate has had investigations conducted as to the current location of both persons and has established that they have apparently travelled to China via Calcutta and Rangoon. After conferring with the Deutsche Hilfsverein, they promised to reimburse the amount of Rs.38/- which had been paid for Sichler. Please ind enclosed a cheque for this amount and a request to acknowledge its receipt. Please note that Mr. Rosenhainer is not a representative of the consulate in Karachi.
