the Government mark ; other articles of the same description are
only passed, on payment of the necessary duty, if they come up to
the Government standard ; if not, they are liable to be sent back.

description for each person ; toilet accessories, such as rings, scarf

8. Eatables, in very small quantities.

9. Cases, trunks, boxes, bales, bags, &c., containing passengers’

mounted with bronze, or otherwise ornamented, although containing
luggage, are not allowed free of duty.

10. Carriages which have been taken out of the Russian Empire,
or the provinces of the kingdom of Poland, may be brought in again
on presentation of a certificate from the custom house by which they
were passed out. All other carriages are allowed in on payment of
duty, but should the passenger wish to return abroad and take the
carriages with him, the duty is refunded on presentation of the receipt
given by the customs officer by whom it was collected. These receipts
are obtainable on request and are valid for two years from the day
of their issue.2
