That's what Kly the Mail is for - pick up at the local post office, bring
it around to all the local farms.   Surely (half)-Whit is not the only
Farmer with clever ideas, someone would think of it.  Or its something the
kids will volunteer for, becuase walking three miles to the river-town post
office and three miles back is much, much better than most chores on the
farm. It's practically an afternoon off.
