Owing to sucn operation by the Postmaster General, it has been deemed appropriate in preparing this report, to show for the period since July 31, 1918, the combined results of operations by the Postmaster General and by the corporation, excluding transactions between them, arising from the operation of the contract between this company and the Postmaster General for the payment of compensation for the properties of this company of which he assumed supervision, possession, control and operation as above stated. Thus are displayed the actual results of the operation of the property in a form comparable with the results shown in previous reports. This method, however, makes it inaccurate to supply figures for certain schedules or parts of schedules in the form requested, as the data would be suitable only for purely corporate statistics. At such points reference notes have been made.
