Terms and conditions on which Messages are received by this Company for Transmission.
The public are notified that in order to guard against mistakes in the transmission of messages, every message of importance
ought to be repeated by being sent back from the station at which it is to be received to the station from which it is originally sent.
Half the usual price for transmission will be charged for repeating the message, and while this company will as heretofore use every
precaution to assure correctness, it will not be responsible for mistakes or delays in the transmission or delivery of repeated messages
beyond an amount exceeding five hundred times the amount paid for sending the message, nor will it be responsible for mistakes or
delays in the transmission of unrepeated messages from whatever cause they may arise, nor for delays arising from interruptions in
the workings of its telegraphs nor for any mistake or omission of any other company over whose lines a message is to be sent to reach
the place of destination. All messages will hereafter be received by this company for transmission subject to the above conditions.
