>> 6 HEVELIUSPLATZ: THE MAIN POST OFFICE
6.2 FOREIGN MAIL

Normally all foreign mail going to the Free City was handled only by the Free City Post. It was possible, however, that mail from foreign countries was handled by the Polish Post in the Free City when it arrived through Poland.

Letter from Chemnitz to Warszawa which was forwarded on to Gdańsk because the addressee had moved. The Polish Post in Gdańsk could not find Mr. Henschel (written annotation on the reverse) and the letter was handed over to the Free City Post. The cancels Ausruf erfolglos and Empffänger nicht zu ermitteln (on the reverse) show that the Free City Post could not find him either, so the letter was returned to Chemnitz (Zurück —1. MAI 1926). CHEMNITZ 4 p cds 22.4.26, WARSZAWA 1 e and 1? cds 24.4.26, POLSKI URZ. P.- T.GDAŃSK NP. 3 cds 28.4.26, DANZIG 1 s cds 29.4.26 and CHEMNITZ 1 c arrival cds 2.5.26. 25 pfennig for the letter and 30 pfennig for registration
