At the back side:

Use ink in addressing letters or other mail matter.
Write plainly the name of the person addressed, street and number, post office and State.
Place your name and address in the upper left hand corner of the envelope or package so that if the letter or other piece of mail matter is not delivered it will be returned to you.
More than thirteen million pieces of mail matter were sent to the Division of Dead Letters last year because of carelessness in writing addresses.
