Early last week, somewhat discombobulated by everything that moving to a new home entails, I headed to downtown Florence and dropped an envelope containing a not inconsiderable amount in cash, together with a bank deposit slip, into the curbside mailbox along with mail.

I only realized my error the following day. I went to the post office, and the helpful worker on duty confirmed my fear that my cash was lost in the labyrinth of the sorting facility. And then, on Friday, I got a call from my bank to say that the envelope had been sent there and the money was safely in my account.

I deeply appreciate the honesty and efficiency with which this mishap was handled. Thank you, USPS!
