Boycotting the Postmaster

New York, 1895

Postmaster Remsen of Jericho has asked the postal authorities at Washington to punish the people who are boycotting the local post office. Remsen, when appointed, moved the office from a thickly settled part of the town to his house, some distance away. A majority of the people now mail their letters at Hicksville. As a result the office receipts have fallen off.
