    Translation
    • Oskar Speck 10 Apil 1939 Currently: Hollandia German Consulate Surabava Having left the teritory of the Dutch Indies I am now sending you the correctly stamped customs certificate. According to this authoity, the amount paid out for my collapsible boat will therefore be reimbursed. Once that has happened, I request that the Consulate inform me of the amount I owe the [German] Aid Association in the Dutch Indies so that I can take the steps necessary to pay off the debt. I believe it amounts to fl.56.00, consisting of the two instalments of fl.25.00 which were transferred and fl.6.00 for a telegram to the Pionier Faltbootwerft [Pioneer Shipyard for Collapsible Boats] in Bad Toelz. The inspector at Tual has informed me that the Government of the Dutch Indies has accepted the Consulate General ' s petition and has refunded the amount paid out for the Surabaya - Saumlaki voyage. As the head of the Ortsgruppe [party organisation] did not send a reply, I assume that the matter is settled. However , if this isn't the case, I urge you to inform me accordingly, so that I can take steps from here to repay the fll61.00 to the Aid Association. Heil Hitler
