ut.....?

In Cap. XXXIII LLPSI Aemelius in epistula, quae ad sororem suam misit, scripsit: 'Quam tardus est iste tabellarius! Celsi sane et ardui montes Germaniam ab Italia disiungunt, ac difficillimae sunt viae quae trans Alpes ferunt, sed tamen celer tabellarius idem iter quindecim fere diebus conficere potest, ut tabellarii publici quibus utitur dux noster.

Post 'ut' nulla clausula sequitur ?

ut......quid? 'ut' = 'sed' ?

Ut conjunctio per anglicè "as" convertitur, in eo modo quod prout vel sicut vel tamquam.
I'm writing in Latin hoping for correction, and not because I'm confident in how I express myself. Latinè scribo ut ab omnibus corrigar, non quod confidenter me exprimam.

Gratias tibi ago.

Bit like 'whilst' as in .....the fast tabellarius is is quick whist the commander uses the public tabellarious...?

..neque coniunctivus hoc 'ut' sequitur.

...but a swift courier can complete the same journey in about 15 days, as the public couriers which our master uses do.
