c. 1880

The difficulty one feels about sending off things to pass a frontier [in France and Italy], is the examination by the douaniers; but I believe that some of the expediters, to be found in all towns, undertake for a small fee to get this managed. I presume they procure the passing through upon the footing of known or credited respectability of the party sending. I sent to Glasgow and Liverpool an exact list of the contents of the boxes, for exhibition, if need were, to the authorities. Some of the bankers – as, for example, Messrs. Macquay, Hooker, and Co., Florence – undertake to despatch goods and works of art to any place in Europe.
