This Day in History

Newburyport Daily News

---- — On this day in 1906, it was reported that scurrilous valentines in the form of postcards were held up in the local mail. Some of these postcards were the most immoral ever to come under the inspection of the U.S. Postal Service. It was said some of the senders as well as the manufacturers were to be brought to justice.
