The "e" should be a giveaway, seeing as the Post Office Tavern didn't include an "e", but the well-known pub called the "Poste House" did/does.
If we're going to start making up random facts about pubs for the sake of excusing an error, then we're not playing fairly, are we? You might as well just invent a pub called the Poste House and have it sit at the top of Riversdale road in 1888, now lost to the sands of time, despite a solid history of local pubs from the Victorian age existing in books widely available in this city not showing any pub of that name existing.
One-Off duty is in no way reflective of "one off instance."
So, again, May was a true man of obscure knowledge, from obscure poetry, to obscure pubs, to obscure phrases, to obscure handwriting.
The writer also spelt 'post haste' with an 'e' showing that this was a spelling error that he repeated 4 times
One off duty is transparently reflective of one off instance.
I'm thinking that's it's time to withdraw here Mike. Such omniscience is a little scary.
