Late Delivered Postcard Brings Deep Apology SALT LAKE CITY (/P)—A mailman wasn't joking yesterday when he apologized for a delay in delivering a postcard to the George H[ Ogden residence. It was postmarked "Richlield, Utah, April 24, 1908." Ogden wrote the card 47 s'ears ago to a Miss Stella Nelson. When she couldn't be located, it was traced back to him. David R.
