The United States Postal Service was established by the Continental Congress in 1775 with Benjamin Franklin appointed as the first Postmaster General. With that institution now under threat, it is wise to be reminded of the service provided by dedicated men and women of the United States Postal Service.
“Neither rain, nor sleet, nor dark of night shall stay these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.”
The phrase comes from book 8, paragraph 98, of “The Persian Wars” by Herodotus, (484 B.C. – 425 B.C.) a Greek historian.
