PROTESTS.

Rates of duty are frequently exacted by Collectors in liquidations of entries on duty of merchandise, which the owners or importers of the merchandise consider erroneous. We make a specialty of these cases, and if there appears to be a good claim we carry the matter before the Board of General Appraisers, and if necessary appeal to the Courts. We make no charge unless successful in obtaining a refund of excessive duties.

2

ADVANCED VALUES. Invoice values are advanced by the Appraiser when they are below wholesale market price at the time of shipment. Importers may appeal to a General Appraiser, and if dissatisfied with his decision, to a board of three General Appraisers. We represent the importer in such cases, and present his claims.

1

DUTIES. By communicating with us in advance, importers can arrange for the payment of duties at any of the ports of entry in the United States or in the Dominion of Canada.

When goods are consigned to us for importers located at places which are not ports of entry, duty will be paid by us at port of arrival and charged forward against the goods.

Goods may be warehoused or forwarded in bond, without payment of duties, either to interior port or export port.

Goods warehoused in United States must have duty paid or exported within three years from date of arrival. Either the whole shipment or any number of packages, but nothing less than a package can be withdrawn at one time.

FORWARDING. We receive and deliver according to instructions goods for Import or Export, but we never purchase for our own account or receive on consignment for sale.

(Note.-Accuracy and precision in customs proceedings are so essential to the interests of importers that the services of a competent broker are usually worth vastly more than the small cost of such services.)

4. Instruct forwarding agent at point of shipment to consign goods to F. B. Vandegrift & Co., and mail them bill of lading by steamer not later than the one carrying the goods.

5. If goods are for an interior port see that the bill of lading is made out F. B. Vandegrift & Co., New York, in bond to

6. If invoice and bill of lading do not reach F. B. Vandegrift & Co., New York, by the time the goods do, expensive general order charges may be incurred.
