We repeat our request to all and every one, to send now and then and at least once a week, to the nearest Distribution office, in order to enquire for the letters that may be there, as it happens very often that letters remains [sic] a long while undeliverd [sic] to the great prejudice of the the [sic] partys concerned: We have already Manifested the impossibility in which we find ourselves to trust Letters to Negros for distribution and can thus do no more then [sic] to send the letters to the nearest offices where the persons are living.
