Care Postmaster, New York, N.Y.,
ATLANTIC FLEET MEMORANDUM 40M-41
1. In the current circumstances, the Commander in Chief does not look with favor on the exchange of Christmas cards between groups of individuals, ships, or units of the Atlantic Fleet.
2. In order to avoid the increase in volume of mail, the attendant loss of time, and the trouble and expense, commanding officers are directed to discourage the practice, and to suggest that the Christmas spirit can be manifested to better advantage by expending the money and energy in support of charitable organizations or of individuals who are in need.
