March 20, 1888. Express cashier James S. Bunnell wanted things done right. He told all agents, in large type, the "Arrangement of Agents' Vouchers for a Settlement with the General Office." For instance, Office Expense included fuel, light, water, ice, brooms, nails, postage stamps, telephone, window shades, stovepipe, coal scuttles, tools, maps, bedding--excepting mattresses and pillows--towels, transporting safes, and minor repairs to the office, trucks, wheel barrows, and scales, while General Expense comprised the traveling expenses of superintendents and route agents, telegrams, treasure box locks, ammunition, and repairs to messengers firearms and portable safes. The office personal property had a much wider range: horses, harness, wagons, covers, and jacks, sleighs, desks, chairs, and stools, stoves, safes, scales, trunks, copy press, stationery cases, bedsteads, mattresses and pillows, haversacks, clocks, guns and pistols, and lastly, lanterns. All had to be in proper order if agents expected reimbursement.
