name of the addressee, with address of destination, and must be en- 
closed in one of the boxes or sacks of such despatch under the form 
of Model 3, annexed hereto.
Exchanges of mails under this convention from any place in either 
country to any place in the other shall be effected through the post- 
offices of both countries already designated as exchange post-offices, 
or through such others as may be hereafter agreed upon, under such 
regulations relative to the details of the exchanges, as may be mutually 
determined to be essential to the security and expedition of the mails 
and the protection of the customs revenues.
1. As soon as the mail shall have reached the exchange office of 
destination that office shall check the contents of the mails.
2. In the event of the parcel bill not having been received a sub- 
stitute should at once be prepared.
3. Any errors in the entries on the parcel bill which may be dis- 
covered shall, after verification by a second officer, be corrected and 
noted for report to the despatching office on a form, verification 
certificate," which shall be sent in the special envelope.
4. If a parcel advised on the bill be not received, after the non-receipt 
has been verified by a second officer, the entry on the bill should be 
canceled and the fact reported at once.
5. Should a parcel be received in a damaged or imperfect condition 
full particulars shall be reported on the same form.
6. If no verification certificate or note of error be received a parcel 
mail shall be considered as duly delivered, having been found on ex- 
amination correct in all respects.
If a package can not be delivered as addressed, or is refused, the 
sender will be communicated with through the central administration 
of the office of destination as to the manner in which he desires the 
package to be disposed of, and if no reply is received from him within 
a period of three months from the date of the notice, the package may 
be sold for the benefit of whom it may concern.
An order for redirection or reforwarding must be accompanied by the 
amount due for postage necessary for the return of the article to the 
office of origin, at the ordinary parcel rates.
When the contents of a parcel which can not be delivered are liable 
to deterioration or corruption, they may be destroyed at once, if neces- 
sary, or if expedient, sold, without previous notice or judicial formality, 
for the benefit of the right person, the particulars of each sale being 
noticed by one post-office to the other.
The Post-Office Department of either of the contracting countries 
will not be responsible for the loss or damage of any package, and no 
indemnity can consequently be claimed by the sender or addressee in 
either country.
