Postoffice Boys Learn Lot Due To Mailing Errors What the postoffice boys find out from postcards which are dropped into the mailing chute, without any address on the front, and no complete name on the back, is a caution. At present they have about 14 cards on hand, which they have no place to send. One asks "Dad" to please send $10 so "I can get out of Algona. If you don't I'll be an old man before I can get away." Another is from a bride and groom who stopped her to mail a card, and forgot to put on the address. It makes even Postmaster Sullivan blush, they tell us. Then there is the card from Lester writing tc his girl friend, and that's another swell card that the boys will probably frame. Im agine writing a love sonnet on a postcard.
