An interesting Letter to the Editor of the Yass Courier of 11 July 1868 canvasses a number of issues which apply equally to most of the Post and/or Telegraph Offices in the NSW Colony and to offices in the other Colonies. Perhaps the main omission is a note that, where offices were staffed full--time (and not part of the local store or the Public House or Court House - as many so-called Telegraph Offices were), the officers in charge were generally on duty or call 24 hours per day for 7 days a week. They were totally supportive, through their positions, of the commerce and personal interests of their local community and the development of their regions.
