Postmaster Huckestein has received
from tho postoffice department at
Washington, D. C, a notice calling es
pecial attention to the chief reason
why mail of soldiers is so often delay
ed. The department states that the real
reason for the delay is the incorrect
address or tho insufficient oddress.
Friends and relatives in writing to sol
diers should be extremelv careful in
give the company and regiment address
or the distinctive organization to which
the soldier belongs. With more than a
million soldiers now in FrnnpA mil
with the hundreds of thousands of taen
in the navy and then all the camps and
schools of instruction in the Fnited
States, the only wav to hnve a letter
delivered is an absolutely correct ad
dress as given by tho soldier himself.
Then there should be the address of
tho writer on the envelope for a return
should the address be suh that the
soldier caunot be located.
