This arrangement will afford great advantages to ourcus

more than one forwarding agent between New York and
Raleigh, and having their goods or produce subjected to
only one handling.
Agents cannot violate the above rule without subjecting
themselves to removal.
The greatest care will continue to be taken by the officers
and agents of the Company in every department of its bus

Whilst the Western merchants are going North a passen

As the Company has two Depots in Raleigh, merchants
ordering goods to go up the N. C. Road are requested to
have them distinctly marked so that their destination may
