San Antonio, Texas, USA

1870  The postmaster at San Antonio, Texas, was not long since puzzled by the receipt of a letter from New Orleans,

directed to "My Mammy, living in the City of San Antonio." One day, however, a small, fierce looking old woman appeared at the post office window, saying, "Mister, have you got any letters there from my Johnny?" The letter addressed to "My Mammy" was at once given her at a venture, and the suspicion that it was intended for her proved correct.
