Concord (N. H.) System Largest in the United States.

Manchester (N. H.) Union

Postmaster Robinson is in receipt of an order from George M. Allen, acting first assistant post-master general, authorizing an extensive enlargement of rural free delivery in Merrimack Country. Carrier service will immediately be instituted on routes from Loudon, Penacook, West Concord, and Hopkinton stations of the Concord post-office, and also from the central office, the rural free delivery system of which already covers the principal highways throughout four hundred squre miles of territory, and will, when completed, be by far the largest local rural system in the United States, emanating from a single post-office and its stations.

The Concord postal plant, inclusive of the central office, now comprises nine different offices, stations, and sub-stations, and the systematic, spoke-like development of its rural free delivery facilities has conduced to make it an exemplary and illustrative one for the Post-office Department throughout the country.
