(9) Colonial and Foreign Pattern and Sample Post.

colonies and foreign countries as are maiked in the
Table of Colonial and Foreign postage with the letter

or samples of merchandise. Goods sent for sale, or
in execution of an order (however small the quantity
may be), or any articles sent by one private individ-
ual to another which are not actually patterns or
samples, are not admissible.
2. The rates of postage will be found in the Table
of Colonial and Foreign Postage.
3. Patterns or samples, when practicable, must be
sent in covers open at the ends, and in such a
manner as to be easy of examination. But samples
of seeds, drugs, and such like articles, which cannot
be sent in covers of this kind — but such articles
onl}' — may be posted enclosed in boxes, or in bags
of linen or other material, fastened in such a manner
that they may be readily opened ; or, in the case of
samples of seeds, &c, for the United States of
America, Holland and its possessions, Belgium, Den-
mark, Greece, Portugal and its possessions, and
Switzerland, in bags entirely closed, provided such
closed bags are transparent, so as to enable the
Officers of the Post Office readily to satisfy them-
selves as to the nature of the contents.
