        The attention of this Court has been called to diplomatic notes received by the Department of Foreign Affairs complaining that court processes or writs have been mailed or otherwise deliver directly to embassies of foreign governments or agencies thereof without coursing the same through the Department of Foreign Affairs. The practice complained of is not in consonance with diplomatic practice.

        Strict compliance herewith is enjoined.
