It is not often that New Zealand letters go astray, but one which was posted at Christchurch on November 13, addressed to a resident of Woodbury, Geraldine, only reached its destination this week. On the flap of the envelope was printed the address of the sender Qranmer Square, Christchurch, New Zealand—but the letter, from the postmarks and inscriptions on the envelope, was received at Topsham, in Devonshire, on December 22 and at Woodbury on the same date • it then went to Edinburgh, the postmark of Scotland's capital bearing the date December .24. Eventually the letter reached Timaru, but there it was noted that the person to whom it was addressed \vn.s not known by the lettercarriers. However, from Timaru it was forwarded to Geraldine, and after its long journey was delivered safely.
