8pp., 12mo. Stapled and unbound. In good condition, on aged high-acidity paper, with slight wear to extremities. Blind stamps and shelfmark of the Hartford Theological Seminary. The text begins: 'The House having under consideration the bill (S. 5876) to establish postal savings depositories for depositing savings at interest with the security of the Government for the repayment thereof, and for other purposes - | Mr SULZER said: [.]'. Suzler's speech is replete with facts and figures, and his position is that 'The postal system of rates, regardless of the character of the matter transported, and regardless of the volume of the patron's business, eminently fits it for this great service. That it will sooner or later be greatly extended over the entire field of public transportation, is absolutely certain; and the people will duly appreciate the aid of those who assist in its extension and development. As far back as 1837, Rowland Hill, of England, promulgated to the world the law that once a public transport service is in operation, the cost of its use is regardless the distance traversed upon the moving machinery by any unit of traffic within its capacity, and upon this law he established the English penny-letter post of 1839.' Printed at the end of the text is Beach's letter, dated 13 June 1910, and addressed to 'Hon. William Suzer, M. C., | Washington, D. C.' WorldCat l;ists two copies in the States and one in Spain. None listed on COPAC. N° de ref. de la librería 14444
