dc.description.abstractLetter to Alexander Hamilton of Queenston from T.A. Stayner of Quebec. The letter concerns the extension of the mail route to Niagara. Mr. Cook (a contractor) has offered to extend his roads to Niagara in consideration of being allowed to part from that office in the morning, heading to Queenston by about 10, and then proceeding to York immediately. He states that he wishes the offer to go into operation with speed. He adds that it will be necessary for the Queenston mail to be ready to by 10 o’clock instead of 12. Since the American mail generally arrives in the evening, he points out there should be sufficient time to have the mail ready. He notes that by accepting this offer, five mails a week are deemed to Niagara instead of two as at present, January 4, 1831. Postmarked York UP-CAN (date illegible).en_US
