The post office departmental Wash
ington has ruled that the writer has a
right to regain possession of a letter
providing he can prove to the satisfac
tion of the postmaster at the office
from which it was sent that ho was tho
one who wrote it. Even if a letter has
arrived at its destination, and beforo
it has been delivered to the person to
whom it has been addressed, it may be
recalled through a telegram through
the mailing office. The reason assign
ed is that the United States is only the
agent of the writer, while tho letter is
in transit. The decision is important
to business men and to private in
dividuals. The Graham-Earle Co. landed in
