ANDERSON BAY POST OFFICE.
TO THE EDITOR. Sir, There is one point I wish to reply to in Messrs Lea and Owen’s letter, otherwise I would not trouble you. They tried to disprove my statement that the majority were inconvenienced for the benefit of the few. Now I would ask what benefit is the new order to the eighty householders? Are they any nearer to where their letters were formerly left ? Have they any greater facilities for getting them ? Have they not to depend as heretofore, no doubt in the majority of cases, on the children when they return from school ? Does the benefit justify the cutting off of the delivery to thirty householders ? Now the facts of the case are as partially told by the above gentlemen. Mr Lea, perhaps, on more than one occasion has received his English letters too late to reply by the outgoing mail, and the alteration has been sought for his benefit. Again I ask: Is it right for the thirty householders to be deprived of a delivery for the benefit of an individual ? If the above gentlemen want to benefit the eighty householders, let them get up a requisition asking for an early delivery, embracing the locality where they reside, then they will do a good work—benefit all and inconvenience none.—l am, etc., Pro Bono Pdblico. Anderson Bay, October 7.
