orders, and now direct orders are completely forbidden, and

it has been  directed  that orders must go through the canteen

here in the camp. Therefore things ordered in that manner

cannot compare with those ordered directly, and likewise in

regard to their prices; for example:

Kobe Firm                                Japanese Merchant

Butter - Yen  0.96                                Yen 1.00

Coffee -         0.73                                     .20 

Bacon  -         0.60                                     .50 

 

                 The management also of the incoming and outgoing mail

should not be left unmentioned. Besides the fact that the letters

of the prisoners of war who do not speak German but are

 Slav  speaking Austrian prisoners are held back with the excuse

that it would be impossible to procure a censor for them, the

following are examples of unfair treatment: the prisoner

 Müller  wrote a postal card before Christmas which he saw again

 ten  days ago in the room of a Japanese servant; Seaman  Frinke 

receive in March, 1915, as the receipt he has shown,  800  cigars

and  300  cigarettes, which were handed out to him little

by little. Then he wanted to have the remaining  100  pieces

the interpreter declared that no more would be given him;

 Seaman Lusch  received on November 23rd, 1915, a package as he

himself and the prisoner Jensen testified in the  ... ;

 when  he wanted to get it on the 24th the interpreter told him

there was as yet no receipt blank; on the next day, as he  ... 

it was gone. On January 7th Seaman  Thiele  sent a letter

to a friend in Fukuoka on the back of which were stuck 42  yen 

worth of stamps with the intention that he send him in return

the value in  pans . The letter was handed in and accepted as

an ordinary letter, and later on inquiry he was assured it

had been sent. Yesterday the letter was by chance found in the
