My outgoing mailbox today

In my mailbox today, I have many pieces of junk mail from the past few weeks, marked “Refused”, plus the following letter I wrote to the Charlton Postmaster.

Those address were just the ones from my stack of mail I refused today that seemed to be most likely to try sending more mail in the future. It’ll be interesting to see how well it works.
