f^itriiislkiikju; HIuII Locks sud Kty?.
Post Ovrics Ukfah i mkmt,
March 14, 1651.
IT being desirable to substitute locks and keys of some other kind
for those now in use for the mail service of the United States,
specimen locks and keys, with nroposals to furnish the saute, will
bo received and considered at the Post Office Department until the
first day ol July next. The different locks will be submitted to a
commission for examination and report. Upon this report contracts
will, us soon ns practicable, be entered into fur furnishing such looks
and keys for four yean., with the right on the part of the Postmaster
General for the time being to extend and continue the contract in
force for an additional term of four years, by giving to the contractor
a written notice to that efl'cct, not more than nine nor less than six
mouths before the termination of the lirst term of four years.
With a view of procuring the bast lock at the lowest price, no kind
of lock is prescribed as a standard ; the department relying for a so
lection on the mechanical skill anil ingenuity which a fair competi
tion, now invited, may develop. It is, however, proper to state that
a lock suitable for the mail service should possess the following
qualities, ti/. : durability, uniformity, lightness, and strength.
For the purpose of displacing simultaneously all the mail locks
and keys now in use, about thirty thousand new locks and twenty
thousand keys adapted thereto will he required to be furnished by
the contractor within seven months after the coutract shall have
durability of the locks and keys adopted, as i
tliv mail service ; but it will probably never exceed in amount three
thousand of the former, and one thousand of the latter.
No lock will be considered if it be like any already in general use;
nor will any one with whom the contract may be made be allowed
to make, sell, or furnish any lock or key similar to those contracted
for for any other purpose or use than that of the Post Office Depart
The kind of lock adopted must be pAtented, and the patentee will
be required, on entering into contract, to make an assigument of his
patent for the exclusive- use ami benefit of the department, if the
Postmaster General shall deem such requirement essential to the in
terests of the service, hi case of the failure of the contractor at any
time to fulfil faithfully the terms and conditions of his contract, the
Postmaster General shall have the nght, besides a resort to the penal
remedy hereinafter mentioned, to annul said contract, and to con
tract anew with any other party or parties, as lie may see fit, for fur
nishing similar locks and keys.
In deciding upon the proposals and specimens offered, the Postmas
ter General may deem it expedient to select for the through-mails the
lock of one bidder, and for the way-mails that of another. Here
serves, therefore, the right of contracting with different individuals
for such different kinds of locks as he may select, and also the right
to reject all the specimens and proposals, if he shall deem thst course
for the interest or the department. The party or parties contracting
will be required to give bond, with ample security, in the suiu of
thirty thousand dollars, for a faithful performance of the contract.
The contract is to contain provisions for the due and proper inspcc
tion of the locks arid keys, and also for guarding against their pass
ing into improper hands ; the terms of these provisions to be ar
ranged between the department and the successful bidder, if a bid
should be accepted.
No application will be considered if not accompanied with satn^
factory evidence of the trustworthy character of the bidder, and of
his ability to Ailftl the contract.
