W1615 TO DR. C.B. MCQUESTEN from the Office of the Postmaster.
Aug 13 1886
To: 15 West 31st street New York City
From: Hamilton Ontario

Indexed Missing Circular.
Post office New York, N.Y.
Office of the Postmaster,
August 13th, 1886.

Mr. C.B. McQuesten,
15 West 31st street,
New York City.

Dear Sir:-

After careful investigation I can find no sufficient ground for your assumption that the circular mentioned in enclosed letter was opened or otherwise improperly treated at this Office. There is a far greater probability that the substitution of which you complain occurred on the route between Hamilton and New York; but I have no means of ascertaining the facts with certainty.1
Very respectfully,

1 See (W1614) for more information on the lost documents.
