The work is conducted with the greatest care, so as to have exact transcripts of the documents that no errors may occur in the copies. Instructions have been given that whenever an apparent error is found in the original it shall be indicated by a slight pencil mark so as to save correspondence. The utmost regard is paid to economy in conducting the work of the branch, so far as that does not affect its efficiency.
