From the Charlotte Whig
June 28, 1864
Char. & S. C. and A., Tenn. & O. Railroad   {Charlotte & South Carolina RR and Atlantic, Tennessee & Ohio RR}
   Owing to the great risk of fire and the difficulty of disposing of freights at the termini of these Roads, the following orders will be strictly observed:
   Shippers are forbidden from putting cotton and forage in the depots or any platform of this Company without the consent of the agent, otherwise, they will be held responsible for all damages to the Company.
   Shippers must agree to promptly receive their freight at Charlotte, Columbia and Junction, and remove them upon delivery, especially when connecting roads cannot receive them, otherwise they will lose priority of transportation.
   This company will not be responsible for any cotton or forage before loaded, or after it is discharged from its cars, or for any goods after twenty-four hours from their delivery in its depots.
   Agents will receipt for no goods until they are ready for shipment of the same.
   The general bad order of freights, the hazard of fire and the responsibility of this Company demand that agents strictly enforce these rules.
