Before the Uniform Rates, how did the Post Offices and Receiving Houses know the charge to put on an entire if it was prepaid ?
For example, if someone went to a Receiving House in deepest Somerset and wanted to pre-pay an entire to a town in Norfolk, how did the RH deputy know what to charge ? What reference did they have that would tell them the up-to-date mileage ?
And how would it work if someone stopped a Messenger on a Walk or Ride and wanted to prepay an entire ? Could that be done ?

if you send me your e-mail address I can send you an article which explains how things were done. Unfortunately this article is a pdf-file which I cannot attach here.
Please send your e-mail to:
