Well Duh.  There wasn't one then.  They gave me the numbers as unique numbers
out of the entire IPv4 address space.  I now have contracted with an ISP who 
has agreed to give me the right to be on the commercial Internet using numbers
given me by the people who controlled the unique IPv4 address space.  

What the letter said was that I needed separate authorization to connect to
ARPANET or DDN.  Since I never connected to them, I never got that permission.
Remember back then, 32 bits was more than they'd ever use (like 64 Kbytes of
RAM on CPM systems)  They were in fact "guaranteed" to be unique and mine in
the whole IPv4 universe.
