ESTABLISHMENTS OF THE GOVERNMENT.

MY DEAR MR. SECRETARY: I am sending you herewith a circular prepared by the Commission on Economy and Efficiency, embodying the conclusions reached by the commission concerning the principles that should govern in the matter of handling and filing correspondence and preparing and mailing communications in connection with the work of the several departments of the Government, together with suggestions for the use of labor-saving devices in preparing and mailing letters, etc.

It is my desire that, so far as may be practicable, the methods of handling correspondence in the Government service be made to conform to these principles. After investigating the subject and putting into effect the principles referred to in such offices as you may consider it advisable, please report to me those offices under your department where it would appear to you they can not be adopted with advantage. Sincerely, yours,

Wm. H. TAFT. THE WHITE HOUSE, February 13, 1912.
