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 ?

Hi,

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:
theo.brauers(at)belgacom.net

Kind regards

Theo

Hi Theo,
We would also be interested in this - would it be possible for you to send the pdf to us at

We would be most appreciative.

Thanks

Many thanks in anticipation.
