COACHING TO THE LACHLAN : CAUTION TO TRAVELLERS. I
To the Editor of the Herald.
SIR,-Your correspondents, Messrs. Elliott and Foreman, must surely be labouring under a very strong delusion, when they inform the public that " they had arranged with MeBsrs. and Co. to take the passengers booked through by them, from to the Lachlan, until their own line was completed," such an arrangement (except as with private persons) never having been entered into.
Our invariable custom with Messrs. E. and F.'s passengers is (and has been for some time) to receive their passage money, and give them a ticket the same as any other ordinary passengers, and those only granted for any certain day, conditionally, on Messrs; Crane and Roberts' coach (.with which we run in conjunction) not bringing sufficient through passengers to make our usual complement.
As a caution to intending passengers, we would beg them to bear in mind that ONLY the passengers booked to the Lachlan or Lambing Flat, by Messrs. Crane and Roberts, or their agents, have a priority of despatch from here by us (ours being the only coaches on those roads), all others having to abide by the former expressed conditions, viz., that of going by rotation, according to the time of booking, and then only contingent on the coach not being booked full through from Sydney.
We have the honour to remain, Sir, yours most obediently,
Pro and Co..
