TK 620130), WHICH DISALLOWED YOUR CLAIM PER SUPPLEMENTAL BILL NO.

WV- 7069383, DATED JUNE 15, 1950.

FOR THIS SERVICE YOU CLAIMED AND WERE PAID $1,681.92, COMPUTED ON THE BASIS OF $1.46 PER 100 POUNDS, NAMED IN SOUTHERN FREIGHT ASSOCIATION SECTION 22 QUOTATION ADVICE NO. A 162, EFFECTIVE MAY 17, 1950. THEREAFTER, YU CLAIMED $403.20 ADDITIONAL REVENUE ON THE PROMISE THAT A RATE OF $1.81 PER 100 POUNDS--- WHICH IS 65 PERCENT OF THE FIRST-CLASS RATE BETWEEN THE INVOLVED POINTS--- IS APPLICABLE TO THE SHIPMENT AS PROVIDED IN AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF RAILROADS SECTION 22 QUOTATION NO. 14- A.

A 162 DID NOT BECOME EFFECTIVE UNTIL MAY 17, 1950.

APPARENTLY AN ERROR WAS MADE IN TYPING THE DATE OF SHIPMENT AS MAY 15, 1950, ON YOUR WAYBILL, SINCE BILL OF LADING NO.
