the working of its lines, for errors in cypher or obscure messages, or for errors from
illegible writing, beyond the amount received for sending the same.

authorized to assent to these conditions for the sender. This Company shall not be
liable in any case for damages, unless-the same be claimed, in writing, within sixty days
