How the postage costs, consisting of Colombian national stamps, have been settled between the private carrier and the Colombian Governmental Post in case the private carrier did not had issued its OWN stamps? This question is also valid for the time period after the private carrier stamps had been prohibited.
  1. Could the private carriers purchase stamps from the Colombian Governmental Post at reduced prices and had the letter to be carried by the Private carrier be handed over to the private carrier unfranked? The Private carrier affixed then the national stamps on the letter (purchased at reduced prices from the Colombian Governmental Post) and charged the sender of the letter the full rate?
  2. Has the private carrier received a certain amount per transported letter from the Colombian Governmental Post?
  3. Had the private carrier been subsidized by the Colombian Governmental Post?
Any hint is welcomed.
