HC Deb 05 March 1888 vol 323 cc164-5
DR. R. MACDONALD (Ross and Cromarty)

asked the Postmaster General, If anonymous letters to Lady Matheson, of the Lewis, have been repeatedly posted up for public inspection in the windows and on the walls of the Storno-way Post Office; and, if it is in accord- ance with the Post Office Regulations that Her Majesty's Post Offices should be used as placarding establishments to exhibit letters sent to private individuals?

THE POSTMASTER GENERAL (Mr. RAIKES) (Cambridge University)

What the hon. Member, no doubt, refers to was a drawing of a coffin sent to Lady Matheson, which she asked the Postmaster of Stornoway to put up in the window of his office. However infamous the conduct of the writer, the course taken by the Postmaster was irregular, and this has been pointed out to him.
