MEMORIAL TO CONGRESS FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A DIS. TRIBUTING POST OFFICE.

a

To the Honorable the Senate and House of Representatives of the United

States in Congress assembled:

Your memorialists, the Governor and Legislative Assembly of the Territory of Utah, beg leave to show unto your honorable body, that,

Whereas, there are a number of post routes diverging from this city; and

Whereas, the post master of this city has to perform in reality many of the duties of a distributing post office; and,

Whereas, in consequence of the California prices which have, and do prevail here, the post master of this city has been under, the ne cessity of involving himself under heavy liabilities for rent and clerk hire; and,

Whereas, many of the post offices established in this Territory, are rendered valueless by want of mail routes; and,

Whereas, the services of a mail agent, are highly important to this Territory;

Therefore your memorialists respectfully pray your honorable body for an appropropriation of five thousand dollars for the relief of the post master of this city; and that a distributing post office be established by law in this Territory; that suitable appropriations be made to defray the expenses thereof; and that a mail agent be appointed and authorized to let contracts on the several routes in this Territory.

Your memorialists feel confident that the above named measures carried out, would greatly tend to facilitate the intercourse among the inhabitants of this Territory.

The favorable consideration of your honorable body upon this important subject, is respectfully desired; and your memorialists, as in duty bound, will ever pray.

Approved March 6, 1852,

Your memorialists, the Governor and Legislative Assembly of the Territory of Utah, beg leave to suggest to your Honor, that post offices are established, and being multiplied throughout our Territory, making Great Salt Lake City post office, central to the various post routes; and,

Whereas, the post master of this city of necessity performs most of the duties imposed on a distributing post office; and,

Whereas, many offices established in this Territory are rendered useless for lack of mail routes; and,

Whereas, it is highly important that a mail agent should be ap pointed for this Territory.

Your memorialists, would therefore pray your Honor to appoint a mail agent for this Territory, who shall be authorized to let contracts on the several routes in this Territory; and that you appoint Great Salt Lake City post office a distributing post office.
