DISRAELI, Benjamin (1804-1881). Prime Minister 1868 and 1874-1880.
Autograph Letter Signed to [William Leader] Maberly (1798-1885 secretary of the Post Office), 4 pages 8vo, House of Commons, 'Friday', no date but ca 1840. Asking Moberly to ensure that members of parliament should have their letters delivered in the normal way, evidently in consequence of the abolition of the free-franking system [on 10 January 1840].
'As members of parliament have been deprived of their privilege of receiving letters free, it seems to me but just, that they should at least be placed on an equality of convenience with the rest of the Public & that they should enjoy the common advantage of having their letters delivered according to the direction these letters bear. ...'
