LETTER:Post code

From Mr Fritz Spiegl

Sir: No wonder the poor postman failed to redirect Jennifer Jarrett's letters (letter, 4 January) if she annotated them with messages that were "cryptic" and "more cryptic". My dictionary says cryptic means "hidden, secret, mysterious, enigmatic" - not the same as terse, which she presumably meant.

Yours faithfully,

Fritz Spiegl
