3iig#„   J,-C,,:cAllister# It is agreed between the sender of the message on the face of this form and this Company, that said
Company shall not be liable for damages arising from failure to transmit or deliver, or for any error in the
transmission or delivery of any unrepeated telegram, whether happening from negligence of its servants or
otherwise, or for delays from interruptions in 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.
To guard against errors, the Company will repeat back any telegram for an extra payment of one-
half the regular rate, and in that case it shall not be liable for damages beyond fifty times the amount
received for sending and repeating.
Correctness in the transmission of messages can be insured by contract in writing, stating agreed
amount of risk, and payment of premium thereon at the following rates, in addition to the usual charge
for repeated messages, viz.: one per cent, for any distance not exceeding 1,000 miles, and two per cent, for
any greater distance.
This Company shall not be liable for the act or omission of any other Company, but will endeavor
to forward the telegram by any other Telegraph Company necessary to reaching its destination, but only
as the agent of the sender and without liability therefor. The Company shall not be responsible for
messages until the same are presented and accepted at one of its transmitting offices; if a message is sent
to such office by one of the Company's messengers, he acts for that purpose as the sender's agent; if by
telephone, the person receiving the message acts therein as agent of the sender, being 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 after receipt of the telegram for transmission.
No employee of the Company shall vary the foregoing.
