Mitchell Addendum

Another explorer, writing in 1893, says that Forty Mile was the most remote mining town in the world and that the mail only came once a year. So we are talking of only a handful of times the mail even arrived at the Mitchell Post Office, no matter whether it turns out to have been a miner's cabin over the U.S. Canadian border, or the counter of Captain Jack McQuesten's store. No wonder it is such a sought after postal cancellation.
