dc.description.abstractProbably the greatest practical reform which the present generation has witnessed was Sir Rowland Hill's Penny Postage reform. The accommodation which the public, especially the poor and those residing in backward districts, have gained from it, is wonderful. Let us take the figures. In 1839, before the reduction in the postage took place, the number of letters delivered in the United Kingdom was 82 millions. In 1875 the number reached 1008 millions. Making allowance for growth of population, this represents an increase from three letters per head to thirty-one, or more than tenfold.en
