Last week, when
you could still send a letter for 3¢, the town of Cut and Shoot, Texas (pop.
194) was receiving its mail through the post office at Conroe, five miles away.
The fame of Roy Harris (see above) has changed all that.
Williams of Conroe has announced that Cut and Shoot soon will have a post
office all its own. It will be located in the corner of a grocery store
be a cancellation machine with the name Cut and Shoot," said Mr. Williams,
"and that should satisfy many people who have been disappointed because
they couldn't get the postmark on their letters."
Mr. Williams had
just one bit of advice for patrons of the nation's newest post office: put 4¢
stamps on letters, please.
