T., that the Mayor is hereby instructed to respectfully represent to the Honorable, the Post Master General, that owning to the increase of the business of the Post Office of the City of Seattle, that our mails are delayed in their distribution for many hours; the present clerical force being entirely insufficient to attend to the business, and the Post Office itself far too small to even accomodate the mails therefor, we respectfully ask that an increase in the appropriation for these purposes be made at the earliest possible moment as the business is rapidly growing and our in-convenience is added to from week to week." The motion for adoption being duly seconded, the resolution is adopted by an unanimous vote of the Council.
