    Children are being mailed. It was legal in some countries to send them to their grandparents. I am not able to converge on the countries.

    Quoting Wiki: After parcel post service was introduced in 1913, at least two children were sent by the service.

    The Postmaster General quickly issued a regulation forbidding the sending of children in the mail after hearing of those examples
