What ! Circular V
The following definition of a circular
aa regards our postal laws, comes from
the postofDce department, and may
prove valuable reading to business men:
A circular is a printed letter which is
being sent in identical terms to several
persons. A circular does not lose its
character as such wben the da'e the
name of the addressee and of the sender
are written therein, nor by the correction
of mere typographical errors. The date,
if written, must be the date of the circu
lar, and not the date upon which some
thing is acknowledged therein to have
been received, or at which something is
to be done, or is to occur.
The permission to correct typograph
ical errors does not include the right to
change prices in writing, or make writs
ten alterations in the text. Matter
printed in circular form, with blank
spaces left for written insertions, must,
wben filled out in writing, be prepaid at
the letter rate of postage. A printed re
ceipt, with the name of the sender or re
ceiptor written therein, or signed there
to, is not a circular,, out is nrst-ciass
