The Messenger Service was the system used in the Shire for its inhabitants to communicate with each other. By this way, along with the Quick Post (which was probably a part of the Service), letters and news was passed between the four Farthings.

The office of the Mayor, in his capacity as Postmaster, was responsible for its efficiency.[1]
