Dear Sir,

I am thinking of paying you a visit today

The mind boggles at the efficiency of the postal system if this could be posted then delivered before the appointed time. The Life & Work (page 68) publishes a letter to John Lane in 1919 touting for work, but here is evidence of a pre-war attempt as well.
