For a large class of situations the two sample sequential probability ratio test shown to terminate with probability one. The results are obtained by showing the convergence of the logarithm of the n-th root of the probability ratio to a difference of two Kullback-Leibler information numbers. These results partially solve the general problem of Savage and Sethuraman Ann. Math. Statist. 37 1966 1154-1160. Author
