S. 3(c): Under section 3(c), the Post Office Act, the
delivery of a postal article at the house or office of the addressee, or to the
addressee or his servant or agent or other person Considered to be authorized
to receive the article according to the usual manner of delivering postal
articles to the addressee, shall be deemed to be delivered to the addressee, So
