Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1896 edition. Excerpt: ...is a draft drawn by one postmaster on another at a distant place. The orders are numbered and a private letter of advice, giving full particulars as to number, amount, name of remitter and of payee, is mailed to the postmaster, on whom the order is drawn. The order will not be paid until the letter of advice is received. When the order is presented it must correspond with the letter of advice. To obtain a poslal order the sender must fill out an application on a blank furnished him by the office. If the sender knows the payee to be a stranger in his place, he can relieve him from the inconvenience of proving his identity by signing a blank waiver shown on the back of the application. If not known, or identification is not waived, the payee must be identified. Postal orders are issued for cash only. Not even certified checks are accepted. To deposit a postal order in a bank, sign the receipt on the face and do not endorse it to the bank, for to obtain the money thereon, they would be obliged to sign the receipt.
