After today, under a parcels post
agreement with Great Britain, parcels
up to a weight limit of eleven pounis

age weighing lit excess of four pounds'
six ounces cannot be sent in the maiV* |

countries with which we have parcels
post conventions; with rJlne, the
weight limit is four pounds six ounc s,
and with twenty-four it is eleven

Owing to tiie objections of the ex-
press companies, however, this weigh:
limit will not apply to points within
the United States.
