Modern conveniences solve this problem very easily.
First: The shipment of the actual money itself: For small amounts registered mail may be used, but the Government liability is limited to $25 in case of loss. Express companies provide a good means - but be sure to value your package up to its full worth. The correct way is to hand the money to the company and let them count it, enclose and seal it in an envelope, and give you the proper receipt.
Second: Transfer of the equivalent of money, " postal money-orders," "cashiers' checks," "certified checks," "express money-orders," "letters of credit," " commercial bills," "certificates of deposit," "cable transfers," and "telegraphic transfers," all of which are explained under those separate subjects.
Ship with Draft Attached. The same as "ship and draw," except that the whole transaction goes through the bank, and no delivery of the note or security, etc., will be made except in exchange for the amount due.
