Content Description Discusses matters related to the postal service in Massachusetts. Explains that the roads are blocked with snow and no post rider can deliver the mail through the towns. Referring to the Massachusetts constitutional convention of 1820, he notes that "the doing of the convention [is] the theme of conversation in every circle, nor will it subside (in my opinion) without more noise."
