Most of the cities and towns in the United States have the city delivery of the postoffices closed on Sundays and no deliveries made on that day. This is not the case in Cincinnati, where the central postoffice and all of its branches are open for one hour on Sunday mornings. This necessitates one-half or more men working seven days in the week. A movement is on foot here now to have the Cincinnati postoffice closed on Sundays, and it has the Israelite’s unqualified support. Every man is entitled to one day of absolute rest out of every seven, and whenever it becomes of great importance to communicate with anyone on Sunday the special delivery or night telegraph letter can be used. — February 9, 1911
