We're sorry this issue came out late. We have to depend on many contributors and one late submission can bog down the whole issue!

Mobile Post Office Society, founded in 1950, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the study of enroute distribution of mail, emphasizing postal history of the USA but including information and study of operations from all countries of the world. Interested collectors can receive a sample copy of "Transit Postmark Collector" for $2.00 postpaid, or a membership application by writing to Doug Clark, PO Box 427, Marstons Mills MA 02648 or by email to Doug.
