Holiday Hint

If you are going away on holiday do remember to unscrew your inner letterbox, and your mail will drop right through onto the mat. If the basket is left in place its one to ten that the heavy mail will protrude through the slot. Just an invitation to thieves in both senses. In the first place they can take your letters, and in the second they can see from the road that the house is uninhabited - F.M.L., Aberdeen.
