Possibly niche question: do you know of any work on female postal workers in the 17th c.? Been searching online but coming up empty even on male carriers, couriers, messengers etc.!

Senior research dog is obviously on my lap, being a large and glorious Springer spaniel. Needs good view of article in progress.

New working set-up apparently now ok with the research dogs, after a vigorous peer review process that involved howling.

Thanks - good call. I've looked at that but it's more ordinary women I'm trying to find out about, and across the early modern period. I just can't find anything!

I have searched BBIH, library catalogues, etc. but can find no secondary material on female postal workers (carriers, deliverers of letters, post office managers) in the early modern period. Am I missing something??

This is an extract from the diary of William Bulkeley, Llanfechell. The diaries are extremely valuable for their vivid portrait of life in the 18th century and include accounts of farm life and from which way the wind blew! ➡️ Via

Yes, please help - my poor graphic design abilities stretched to the max... Which one is best though?

Sounds daft, but I hadn't thought of doing that - wasn't sure if it was 'allowed'! I'll give it a go.

Also on today's list: to begin revisions to the article I had provisionally accepted in late Dec. Anyone else ever just wish they could ask a reviewer a clarifying question about a (very good) suggestion?
