The Bureau has instructed me as follows in reference to rents of Bank Offices:-

1st Whenever a Superintendent of Education or a Disbursing Officer uses the Bank as an Office, the Bureau will pay the rent.

2nd Whenever the Bureau uses the Cashier of a Branch as a Disbursing Officer, the Bureau will pay the rent of that Office.

3rd When the lease of any Bank office, used as above, is made out to the Bank, the bill should be made out for the rent by the Bank, against the Bureau and sent to the Chief Disbursing Officer (Gen. G. W. Balloch) at Washington, for settlement.

You are hereby instructed to act in accordance with the above, so as to secure, whenever practicable, the payment of your rent by the Bureau.

Yours truly,
