General Post Office
1 April 1834
I exceedingly lament the trouble which has been occasioned by your Letters having been so frequently charged in the Country.
I beg to explain that these charges have been made at the place where the Letter was posted & the object of obtaining a receipt, or the blank Cover, has been that the postmaster may have a Voucher for claiming the allowance in his Account with this Office.
I shall however, in your case, direct these improper charges to be erased previously to the delivery of the Letters & specially provide for the claims made on this account without requiring your vouchers, and I sincerely trust that you will have no further trouble.
I have the honor to be Sir, Your obedient humble Servant
H. F. Talbot Esqr
