Mr. K. Thompson

About 90, out of an initial order of 100 machines ordered for field trials delivered in October, 1958, have now been installed outside Post Offices. Their performance is generally satisfactory and we intend to obtain several hundred more. I cannot say how many will be installed this year. This will depend on delivery dates.
