WE HAVE ALSO CONCLUDED THAT, UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES OF THE CASE, THE AMOUNT OF $1,204, REPRESENTING PAYMENT TO THE GOVERNMENT AT THE RATE OF $2.00 PER CAR FOR THE SWITCHING OF A TOTAL OF 602 LOADED CARS FOR THE CONSOLIDATED SAND AND GRAVEL COMPANY DURING THE PERIOD MAY 26 TO OCTOBER 22, 1953, MAY BE CONSIDERED SUFFICIENT TO DISCHARGE THE ESTATE'S LIABILITY TO THE GOVERNMENT WITH RESPECT TO THAT ASPECT OF THE CASE, AS CONTENDED FOR IN MR.
