Parcel post your children

Sounds convenient to me. The USPS should start up the service again.

In 1913 it was legal to mail children in the U.S.. With stamps attached to their clothing, children rode trains to their destinations, accompanied by letter carriers. One newspaper reported it cost fifty-three cents for parents to mail their daughter to her grandparents for a family visit. As news stories and photos popped up around the country, it didn’t take long to get a law on the books making it illegal to send children through the mail.
