Saturday 1 April 1843, The Sydney Morning Herald

NEW POST OFFICES. - His Excellency the
Governor has approved of Post Offices being
established at the following places : Gundagai,
situated sixty-live miles from Yass, on the
Melbourne Road ; Albury, situated one hun-
dred and thirty-five miles from Gundagai, on
the route towards Melbourne; and Armidale,
situated one hundred and fifty miles from
Port Macquarie, in the New England district.
Parties, therefore, wishing to receive their
communications through any of these offices,
should caution their correspondents to address
their letters and newspapers to that office, dis-
tinctly by its name, and so provide against
the chance of their being forwarded to any
adjacent Post Office of the same county or
district.
