Edge Moor, Del. Gentlemen:--I am sending you a photograph of my mail outfit, showing my Light Runner. I am the first and only woman carrier in the State of Delawaware. I substituted my route two years and now have been regular carrier for five years. The only thing that I regret is that I did not buy your Light Runner No. 514 sooner. My horses do not have to use any exertion: they seem to go along the road as if they had nothing behind them. And it is easy to serve the mail from the sliding window. Best of all, I know my mail is safe. These winter days with only a foot heater. I do not know that it is cold outdoors. I can truthfully say that I found my Light Runner more than all you represented it to be. Truly yours, LILLIE A. DONOHOE, Secretary Delaware R.L.C. Association.
