Francis Sedlak

"Wanting to post an article he'd written, 'My Military Experience', he realised he could not bring himself to lick the back of a stamp bearing a portrait of Queen Victoria and support the government-run postal service, so he set out to walk to London and deliver his article by hand, but "the weather was very cold with heavy snow and he was clad only in thin clothes with no shoes. Not surprisingly he was forced to turn back"
~ from the back cover of Designs for Anarchist Postage Stamps by Clifford Harper.
