baby vintage postcard

At least two children were sent via the US Postal Service in 1913! General Postmaster Hitchcock finally poopooed the practice after being inundated with letters inquiring into how one ships bambinos via parcel post! Here's an actual example:

Postmaster General,

Washington D. C.—Sir: I have been corresponding with a party in Pa about getting a baby to rais (our home being without One.) May I ask you what specifications to use in wrapping so it (baby) would comply with regulations and be allowed shipment by parcel post as the express co are to rough in handling Yours
