The exchange of money orders with Costa Rica will be

Writing maY be either in the English or Spanish
language, but must be in Roman letters and Arabic
numerals, without erasure, alteration or obliteration,
and no money order shall contain a fraction of a cert,
or of a centime. The maximum amount for which a
single money order may be drawn is fixed at $100 I'. S.
currency. The amount of money orders in both direc-
tions shall be expressed in the money of the country of
origin, and, because of the difference in value between
the dollar of the United States and the colon of Costa
Rica, and on account of the fluctuation in value of the
currency of Costa Rica, it has been agreed that the
amounts of all money orders shall be converted into
their I ministration

of Costa Rica, and that for this purpose that country
shall make use of the money order exchange office

at .^<n lose, to which all advirpifl nf jmnijev orrlfrfl.



issued in either country upon the other, shall be sent;
and where the sum thus advised by the Postal Depart-
ment of Costa Rica, for money orders drawn on the
Canal Zone, shall be converted into U. S. money, at the
current rate of exchange at the time of receipt of such
advices by the exchange office. In like manner, the
amounts named in advices of orders issued in the Canal
Zone on Costa Rica shall, upon their arrival at the ex-
change office at San Jose, be converted into the currency
of Costa Rica at the current rate of exchange on the day
of the arrival of the advices.

The exchange office will write on each advice, in red
ink. the amount to be paid in the currency of the coun-
try of destination, and dispatch the advices to the re-
spective offices of payments, where the amount on the
advice (in red ink) is to be paid on the corresponding
order, and at the same time entered on the face of the
order fat the time of payment) in red ink.

Advices shall be dispatched by the first mail after
issue of the order to the exchange office at San Jose.

Application for second advices shall be complied
with, and shall be sent to the exchange office at San
Jose for certification and transmission to the office of
payment.

Postmasters in Costa Rica and the Canal Zone may
correspond with each other:

1 . In making requests for second advices and comply-
ing with the same.

2. In making inquiries regarding the payment or
repayment of orders.

3. In recalling advices of repaid orders.
Domestic money order fees will be collected on orders

issued for payment in Costa Rica.

Costa Rica orders will be reported to this office and
to the Auditor in the same manner as are all other orders.
In the weekly reports the words "Costa Rica" should

Rubber stamps for that purpose will be furnished you.
