The drawback entry must show the net weight of the saw blades in condition as exported, together with the weight of the steel in condition as imported, which has been used in their manufacture. In addition to the usual averments, the drawback entry must further show that the saw blades exported were manufactured of the materials and in the manner specitied in the manufacturers' sworn statement, dated April 27, 1904, on file in your office.

In liquidation, the amount of imported sheet and ribbon or strip steel, which may be taken as the basis for the allowance of drawback, may equal the quantities consumed as declared in the drawback entry, provided that in no case shall such amount exceed in weight the net weight of the saw blades in condition as exported with 10 per cent of such exported weight added thereto to compensate for loss incident to manufacture. Respectfully,
