Dear Sturbridge Highway Department,
Thanks for the loan of the mailbox after one of your plows took out ours. It was appreciated very much. I mentioned your kind act several times to others, and they found it hard to believe, as did I when I found it in front of our house. You done good.
On Saturday I replaced your loaner with a new mailbox, and put yours up behind the garage. You can pick it up at anytime.
One morning as I was pulling into the driveway after work I noticed that your loaner mailbox was gone! Well, not totally gone, just out of view. Seems the plow has little loyalty to one of its own, and once again took out a mailbox in front of number 60. It wasn't damaged, and served us well for the rest of the winter. Thanks again.
