White Pine County Nevada Postmasters 1865 ¯ 1997Early postmasters were often a one-person department and theirs was not an easy duty. Early newspapers often carried lists of persons who had mail waiting. Segregated - Men's letters on the top, then women below. Addresses were not as formal as today's automated postal system requires! From the following article in the White Pine News, May 6, 1870 (page 3, column 2) Hamilton Postmaster Harvey Carpenter had to be a detective among his other postal duties. Was Frank Brown a cook or a gambler?

POETICAL ADDRESS
Frank Brown, a poker sharp,
To whom this letter wants to go
Is playing 'draw' and making grub
In Hamilton, White Pine O, Ho!
