5 December 1954
Collector of Internal Revenue
Los Angeles, California
I am, unexpectedly, making a trip to Stockholm and then to other countries, around the world, which will last until the middle
of March 1955.
My records for the calendar year 1954 are not yet complete, and it has not been possible for me to prepare for my wife and
me our income tax statement before our departure. Moreover, circumstances will be such as to make it impossible for us to
prepare it during our absence from the United States.
I am accordingly planning to prepare the statement and to pay any tax that is due at some time before 15 April 1955.
In the meantime, I am making a payment of $2500.00 through the enclosed check. This is a rough estimate that I have made
of the amount of tax that will be due. As stated above, I plan to pay any additional sum that may be necessary on or before
15 April 1955.
Very truly yours,
