I love that. Thank you for sharing!
Fantastic. Nowadays I generally got my one post of the day around 4pm.
Until around 2005, I received deliveries at my office at 9.30am and 1.30pm.
It reads like an editorial or a letter. Journalism was very different back then - comment was freely peddled as 'news' and opinion often dressed up as a news item. The headline strangely does not really reflect the content below.
Of course back then correspondents often expected a reply 'by return' and the businessman referred to would be unable to do so until late or even the following day - very rude behaviour for then.
The title actually did not last long (in fact 1899 to 1905 I find).
Wow back in the day
