The department desires to reduce
Sunday work to the minimum, so that
as many of the employes as possible
may enjoy a complete day of rest on
Sunday. You should, therefore, re

clerks to report for duty on that day
In order that transit mail and the mall
collected for dispatch may be handled
without delay. If no mail is dispatch
ed on Sunday a very early collection
should be made on Monday morning
and the mail for local delivery dis
tributed before the carriers leave for
their first trip.
