A Good Record
Postmaster Markham reports that during the few days before Christmas the post office handled 97 special delivery and 48 C. O. D. parcels; 306 outgoing insured articles; 330 insured incoming articles, making 703 packages of which a record had to be made. In additions to this there were 1300 packages not insured or registered, making a total of more than 2,000 packages handled in these few days. This together with thousands of uncounted greeting cards and letters indicates that the post office was quite busy, but so thoroughly did the postmaster and his clerk have things in hand that none were lost and there was very little delay.
Mr. Markahm thanks the public for their consideration and patience and for their well wrapped packages during the time, without which he could not have delivered so good service.
