Postal Blarney

Bill Barkemeyer of Topeka, KS, gets
in a festive Saint Patrick's Day mood.
Interestingly, there are two letters that St. Patrick wrote which still survive. His short account of his life and mission remain the best source of information about him. Another example of the historical value of letters.

For fun here are some Post Offices with Saint Patrick Day names:
