Because y( u forgot to address it. Because you forgot to stamp it. Because you forgot to write the town or State oti the envelope. Because you ucea a once-canceled stamp. Because you cut out au envelope stamp and pasted it on your letter. Because you used a foreign stamp. Because you wrote the address on the top of the envelope, and it was surely obliterated by the ]ostoffice dating, receiving and canceling stauips. And because you put your letter in a blank envelope, and sealed it and fyrwarded it to -the Dead Letter Office, where thousands of voluablc letters tc deatroyed, bccausu the people are either careles or ignoran tot' the postal-lawH. And to the above we would add a few reasons why an answer doo't come: Because you do not sign your name. Because you sign it so indistioctly it cannot be read. Because you do not give name of postoffice. Because you do not giye name of county. Because you do not give name of State. Because you write with a peuoil, which is rubbed oñ aud iüegible. Because you uec ink ëo palé and diin it can not be read. Because you write so poorly no one can read it. Because you do not enclose stamp to prepay postage on tbe answer.
