Ground will be broken for the new Post Office at Hampton, N. H. this week according to word received in Washington today. The new office, of brick and concrete, located on Depot Square will be ready for the Government to take over on a ten year lease sometime in October. Thomas Cogger is building this office and it will be one of the most modern second class offices in the State. Mr. Cogger will also have charge of carrying the mail to and from the Boston and Maine station to the Post Office.
