  Stamps
  
  When we send a letter or a postcard, we have to put stamps on the envelope or on the card. When did people first begin to use stamps? Who was the first to think of this idea? Here is some information about it.
  
  In the early nineteenth century, people did mot use stamps. They had to pay for the letters or postcards they received. People didn' t like it. First, it was not convenient. Second, sometimes they had to pay for the letters they didn't want to receive at all, such as advertisements. Third, the postage was high at that time. And it was difficult for postmen to collect the postage.
  
  Then one person thought out an idea to solve this problem. He was Rolland Hill, a schoolmaster in England. He was the first to put forward a proposal to use stamps in 1850s. He thought it would be much more convenient for people. They could go to a nearby post office to buy stamps and put them on the envelopes before they sent letters. The post office could simply put seals on the stamps to prevent them from being used again. That was a good idea and it was accepted by tile government finally.
  
  邮票
  
  当我们寄信或寄贺卡时,我们必须在信封或贺卡上贴邮票。人们什么时候开始使用邮票的呢?谁是第一个想到这个主意的人呢?下面是一些相关信息。
  
  十九世纪初,人们并不使用邮票。他们是在收到信或贺卡时付邮资。人们不喜欢这种方式。第一,不方便;第二,有时候他们不得不为他们不希望收到的信付钱,例如广告;第三,那时候邮费很高,邮递员要收邮资很困难。
  
  然后有人想到了一个方法来解决这个问题。他就是Rolland Hill,英格兰一年学校的校长。他是第一个在十九世纪五十年代提出使用邮票这个建议的人,他认为这对人们来说会方便得多。在发信之前他们可以去附近的邮局买邮票,贴在信封上。邮局只需在邮票上盖上邮戳就能防止邮票被再次使用。这个好想法最终被政府接受了。
