Is it not possible for the Postal Department to exercise a little more caution ? The person to whom the letter was addressed is an Australian who enlisted in Canada; and the address ought to have been clear enough. However, the Postal Department considered that it was not sufficient, and they altered the letter " C," signifying Canada, into "A," and sent the letter to Egypt, whence it has been returned to the Dead Letter office. The return of this letter was followed by the return of four others, but at length the Department woke up to the fact that " England " does not mean " Egypt," and they have been forwarded.

Mr Spence - I am very glad to have this envelope. This is the only way in which any check can be exercised.
