POST OFFICE. [heading]
The Postmaster - finding that,
notwithstanding the cautionary Advertisement inserted in this paper the 21st of
June last (relative to Masters of Vessels delivering their Letters at the Post
Office, as is by Law directed), the practice of giving them to others still
continues - hereby again informs the Publick, that no person whatever has a
right to demand or receive Letters of any master, but the Postmaster or his
agent Mr. Perry. The Act of Parliament particularly specifies, that all
Letters are to be delivered through the medium of the Post Office, and its
provisions must be complied with. Owners of vessels may rest assured that
their Letters will be sent to them immediately, free of postage; but the
Masters must first deliver them at the Post-Office, or the Law will be enforced
It being extremely inconvenient and
laborious to the Postmaster to keep open Accounts, Gentlemen are requested to
come to a settlement immediately after the dispatch of each Mail. - Demerary,
