A SLIGHTLY WHIMSICAL FOLLOW UP TO MY POST RE ‘THE LETTER’

It is now 11 days (seven working and four weekend) since I posted the letter from Paihia to Perpetual Guardian in Auckland and it has still not arrived. In the meantime a letter posted from the family farm in Kingsland, just outside Leominster in Herefordshire, UK, posted a day later, arrived yesterday. Sigh.

I am advised a letter posted in Paihia to an Auckland address around 1914 took approx 7 days to be be delivered.

Such is ‘progress’. New Zealand, the way you’ve got it.

IS NZ POST GOING THE WAY OF BANK CHEQUES

I mean posted a letter in Paihia last Friday to be delivered to an Auckland address and still not delivered as of a few moments ago.

Sheesh … it’s only 190 km distant. Snail mail in word and deed.
