clearly understood that Registration cannot extend beyond the
port of despatch in the L^nited Kingdoms, though parties, if they
wish it, may register such letter as far as the port of despatch.

through France, are er-iceptions to this rule, the French Pest Of-

the French territory, if passing through France.
