Codification

R.S. § 4309 derived from act Feb. 28, 1803, ch. 9, § 2, 2 Stat. 203.
Reference to “commercial agent, or vice-commercial agent” was omitted in view of the abolition of the grade of commercial agent by act Apr. 5, 1906.
As originally enacted, this section also required the deposit of sea-letters and Mediterranean passports. The use of such documents was discontinued by Presidential proclamation on Apr. 10, 1815.
