Yes, a lot of extra time, tuit IIP never suggested using the meter because he knew that no stamp collector would have anything to do with that dreadful mactalne. Many whom he so faithfully served likely did not know how fortunate they were for I have read main reports of indifference and hostility to the collecting fraternity. How pleasant it was to follow each reading with the thought "Ah, hut not here." \\P are prone to critlc,i7,e when things gowning and accept without comment cun- sistant virtue.

I started collecting stamps in grade school and thru the years provided the post office with considerable business and considerable work as well. I use the word "business" deliberately, because Wade always treated stamp collectors with the courtesy and concern that you would expect from a competitive enterprise. There was no other place to take your business, but Wade's public image was never that of a monopoly. He always made every effort to see that new issues were available and that those peculiar and requests for „, * ' on assorted rules relative to foreign mail or to see if I could do postally what I claimed that I could do. How much time was spent in counting stamps with values from 1/2 to 5 cents used in profusion for a 90 cent postal charge ? Sometimes he would look at the wild assortment, ask me how much was there, look again, sigh, and say "I'll take your word for it." Things did get a bit complicated when I tossed in a few 1 1/4 cents as of course, that all transactions involved the postmaster himself, but the office reflects the personality and leadership of the man In charge and I never found the spirit of service to be wanting. During my service in Korea, I sent my letters home via air mail special delivery but the rate changed unknown to me. Nevertheless, these letters continued to receive special treatment until 1 could be notified of the change. While the peculiarities of the collector often seem quite mysterious and perhaps silly to the uninitiated, Wade learned them well. Frequently, when I would present an elaborately- franked envelope for insurance or registration, he would study it a moment, complete the necessary details and then present the cancellation stamp and pad so it would be done exactly right. I wonder how much time he spent during these past 25 years in going thru those heavy postal regulation books to check Christmas LAING Plumbing & Heating Best wishes from all of us And thanks for your patronage.
