PROFITABLE POST OFFICES. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 11 September 1907

Whether a uni versal penny postage would pay re mains to be seen ; but those who, lUt-- Mr Hennlker Heaton, M.P., have gone ; deeply Into the subject, declare that it '' would. It certainly is absurd that Jt should cost twopence-'ialfpenny to send a letter from Dover to Calais— a ins tance of 21 miles— while a letter can be despatched to Fiji— 11,000 miles— for a penny.'
