November 1982
New Yorker;11/29/1982, Vol. 58 Issue 41, p172
The article presents the occurrence of undelivered mails in the U.S. Two bags of mail were uncovered and wrongly sealed in a Post Office wall in Tiny Waddy, Kentucky in 1910 were uncovered by the present owners of the building. The letters were still intact and yellowed but the addresses were still legible and the 'dead letter' office of the U.S. Postal Service in Cincinnati will try to deliver the letters to the descendants. The incident was lifted from the San Francisco Daily Commercial News.
