Another method of sending money to Russia is by obtaining from

a local banker a draft on a bank of international importance, such
as the Bank of England, in the name of the payee in Russia. The
amount is paid to the banker on receipt of the draft, and the draft
can then be sent to the payee under registered cover, and the latter
will be paid the amount on presenting the draft duly endorsed by
himself to a Russian bank.

Postal money orders may be sent to Russia from Austria-Hungary,
Germany, France, and Switzerland, provided the following
regulations are observed :—

1. Money may not be sent by telegraph order.

2. In sending money by postal orders special printed forms must
be filled in, stating the amount to be sent, in Russian roubles, and
giving the name and address of sender and receiver ; and no remarks
or communications are allowed to be added.

3. The amount of money to be sent must not exceed 100 Russian
roubles, and foreign money is taken by the Post Offices of the respective
■countries at the following rates of exchange : —

i crown (in Austria-Hungary) - 39*377 copecks,

i mark (in Germany) - 46*293 ,,

i franc (in France and Switzerland) - - 37’5 ,,

4. If a postal order is lost in the post the sender is entitled to ask
for a duplicate, or for the reimbursement of the amount of the same
within a period of one year, counting from the day of the sending of
the postal order.

Postal money orders may be sent to Russia from Great Britain,
and money orders may be obtained at any money order office in the
United Kingdom for payment in Russia. The remitters will receive
certificates of issue as receipts for the amount paid in ; and these
should be retained. Payment will be effected in Russia by means
of orders issued by the Russian post office. The poundage chargeable
in Great Britain is as follows :—
