FREE MAIL DELIVERY
AT A IN EARLY DATfe
Congressman Johnson on the Job nnd
is Making Things Hum for Deliver).
From present indications it seems
that the free delivery of mail for Lau
rens is only a matter of tiuie. Con
: gressman Jos. T. Johnson, who was
in Spartan burg a few days ago, in
conversation with a well known citi
zen of Laurens. stated that he had been
to the Post Oiflce Department and
made urgent demands that an inspec
tor be sent down to look over the sit
uation and to see if all the require
ments had been met with. As it is
fairly certain that all requirements'
have been met with, it can be con-!
fidently stated that the delivery will
be installed at an early date. In con
nection with what he said at the time.
Congressman .lohnson stated that In
spectors had been sent to Laurens on
three different occasions to look over,
the ground and as the street signs had
not been erected and house numbers j
put up, an adverse report was put in. j
Of course, this resulted in no free;
delivery. Hut as the city council has
awakened to the needs of the city and
done away with this obstacle to pro
gress, nothing is left to be done to
gain the coveted service.
A number of letters have been sent
to Congressman .lohnson about the
service and the following answer was
received to one of them:
"My dear Sir:
? | have your favor requesting my ef
forts in behalf of Laurens with respect
to the early installation of free deliv
ery. I had a letter from Dr. II. K.
Aiken last week on tlx- same subject.
I immediately took the matter up with
the proper authorities at the Post of
llce Department. 1 have the assur
ance of the Superintendent of Free
that they have at last taken Hm neces.
mediate attention. 1 again called his
attention to it today, and he assured
me that we would not be delayed. I
am especially interested in the instal
lation of the service on account of my
long association and friendship tor
the people of Laurens. as well as be
cause it is my official duty to help
them. As soon as your postal reve
nues reached the stage that tendered
city delivery possible. 1 urged the city
authorities to number the houses and
post the streets, as I knew the ser
vice would not he installed until those
requirements were met. 1 am glad
that thy have at last taken the neces
sary steps in that direction.
"Very sincerely yours.
"Jos. T. Johnson."
