CIRCLING THE SQUARE: Snow and a special appreciation of Danvers' residents - Wicked Local Danvers

Monday, February 20, 2017

Not even close!***If you are a WBZ-TV Channel 4 viewer, you may have wondered who the Ed was that used to send in weather tidbits for Danvers.Well, it took me awhile but I decided it had to be Ed Brewster and when I saw him one Election Day when he worked at the polls, I asked him and he modestly confessed.Last Thursday evening, however, I noticed a new name on the screen, Jonathan of Danvers. If you know who Jonathan is or if you are Jonathan, just email me to let me know: msfearer@gmail.com.***I have to commend the postal carriers in Danvers. I actually didn’t expect to get mail Thursday afternoon but I did, so thank you to all of you folks who still believe in what is considered the Post Office creed. “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.”Strangely, this is actually the unofficial Post Office creed and thanks to Google I’m going to share the interesting history with you.The phrase can be found in block letters on the James Farley Post Office building in New York City, facing Penn Station. It was a translation by Professor George Herbert Palmer of Harvard University from an ancient Greek work of Herodotus describing the Angarium, the ancient Persian system of mounted postal carriers circa 500 B.C.It comes from a quote from Herodotus’ Histories, referring to the courier service of the ancient Persians. (Imagine how many gold coins that must have cost?)If you’re not familiar with it, I don’t blame you. After all, how often does the word Angarium come up in daily conversation? So now I will give you the formal definition.“The Angarium was the institution of the royal mounted couriers in ancient Persia. The messengers alternated in stations that had a day’s ride distance along the royal road. The riders were exclusively in the service of the Great King and the network allowed for messages to be transported from Susa to Sardis (2,699 km) in seven days; the journey took ninety days on foot."***Seven days was pretty good service in 500 B.C., but not necessarily in 2017. Actually I was anticipating mail from Ridgefield, Conn., weeks ago, but that took 11 days to get to me.My niece sent out invitations to her son’s Bar Mitzvah in January for a March event. My sister-in-law called me to ask me what I thought of the invitation, which, of course is gorgeous.In fact, I told my niece that she should definitely frame it because it’s definitely a keepsake.Anyway, everybody seemed to receive their invitation except my son and me, so after a week went by I was convinced that the calligrapher somehow missed the two Fearer names.Matt and Jackie, my son and daughter-in-law, received theirs and mine came on the 11th day, Jan. 27. The postmark was Jan. 17.Interestingly, there were two bar codes, one on the back and one on the front. Aha, I thought, I bet this has something to do with the delay, so I took...
