Less than fifty years ago there was
no postnl system in this country.
Previous to 1847 the mails were carri
ed by private firms, and rates varied
according to distance. Carriers often
traveled on foot or horseback, and the
progreas was slow. In 1846 some of
the postoffices issued stamps of their
own, called "provisional issues."
The adhesive stamp was first used in
of this country in 1847, and prepayment
was made compulsory In 1856. ln
1863 the stamp containing the head
of Andrew Jackson was issued, and
from then until 1885 the stylo adopt
ed, contained the profiles of Presidents
of the United States.
