THE MAIL PACKET

The mail packet with the King's cypher on the front.

The reverse side of the packet with the King's seal set in wax to insure the safety of the mail contain'd within.

Into my hand has been giv'n a packet of mail to be deliver'd to Fort Loudoun upon my return to the land along the Tenasee River. It bears the King's cypher on the front and a heavy red wax seal set into the twine on the back. Other than a bit of dirt and wear on the canvas packet, it appears to be in right good condition. The packet itself is thick, about two inches, and it is heavy.

I do not know when the last time a mail packet entered into the fort, so I suspect that it will be eagerly received by the men. It looks to have come a great distance, and I will perform my duty for King and country and carry it this week's end on the final portion of its journey.
