NOTICE
Cable Rates are liable to alteration without notice. With so many various routes and Radio messages it is practically impossible to keep pace with changes. The latest Post Office Guide will furnish up-to-date information, and Code users are recommended to apply to local stations abroad for cheapest rates. By using Code and Deferred rates it is frequently possible to send messages from ports abroad at most moderate rates.
