Under a Treasury regulation it is necessary that the invoices of all goods, imported into the United States, and subject to a duty ad valorem, shall be made out in the currency of the place or country from whence the importation is made, and shall contain a true statement of the actual cost of the goods, in such foreign currency or currencies without any respect to the value of the coins of the United States, or foreign coins, which now are, or shall be by law, made current within the United States, in such foreign place or country.

It should be observed that all woollen, woollen mixed, and all other such goods the duty on which is estimated partly on weight and measure, must have net weight added.

Of these three invoices, one is retained by the Consul, another sent by him direct to the the Collector of Customs at the port of destination, and the third returned to the merchant, after authentication by certificate under Consular seal, who forwards it with his goods to the shipper, with instructions to insure and ship as per invoice. All disbursements, except insurance, such as Consul's fee, cost of wrappers, cases, &c. should be added at the foot of the invoice. Freights are usually charged forward, the consignee receives his certified invoice, liquidates his entry by paying the duties in gold, and receives the goods.
