p.3 We the undersigned hereby give public notice, that we will not be accountable or liable as FORWARDERS or COMMON CARRIERS, on the River St. Lawrence, for the hazard and danger of the navigation hence to Montreal and vice versa.

We promise the public to employ none but sober, experienced men as Masters of our Boats.

We will at all times when it can be done, effect insurance on property consigned to us with some respectable office, for its safe delivery at Montreal, and at the lowest premium to be obtained.

In cases where no instructions are given, with respect to the amount to be insured, on the different descriptions of property, we shall insure such amount as we conceive will be for the safety and interest of the owners. - The property will be made subject to the premium paid for its insurance. - Persons who consign property to us for transport, and object to this course, will immediately signify it by letter, in which case they must consider themselves subject to all the liabilities of the navigation hence to Montreal.
