Ninety per cent of the mail in the United States is handled by the Railway Postal Clerks. A crew of two men on an overland run in each period of 12 hours will distribute 18,000 letters and 15,000 papers. Statistics show that but one error is made to every 18,000 pieces of mail handled, which speaks well for the organization and efficiency of the Railway Mail Service.
