Selchow & Righter Co. produced their board game "Daily Mail" in the late 19th century. Like many board games of that period, this game teaches children while they play. At game's start a group of "letters" is evenly divided among players. As they visit "addresses" along the game's path, they deliver the mail and thus must read the address. The first player to deliver all letters is the winner. A highly decorative box cover helped make this example a high quality game.
