New Hampshire State Prison has radically changed its rules for sending mail to a prisoner. These guidelines should help.

  • No greeting cards of any type, or for any occasion, are allowed in mail to a prisoner here as of May 1, 2015. I can still purchase cards to send out, but you can no longer send a greeting card to me – not even at Christmas. Bah Humbug! The issue seems to be a ban on any paper that is thick or layered such as card stock.
  • Nothing can be drawn by hand on a letter. Prison Administrators explained the new policy as follows:
  • “It is important that you keep in mind that the intent of this is NOT to limit a person’s ability to write a letter to an inmate, but to prevent drugs from being hidden within heavy paper stock or mixed with a fluid and dried on the paper – sometimes camouflaged by drawings.”
  • Photographs and printed material, including printed images, are still permitted as long as they are printed on plain or “photo-quality” paper. Letters, Internet printings, and printed articles are still allowed. So please don’t feel deterred from writing!
  • Though material printed from the Internet is permitted, photocopies of published materials, e.g., from a book or magazine are not allowed.
  • Remember that I receive only the contents of mail and not the envelope. So be sure to include your address in the body of your letters.
  • Mail is limited to 10 pages per envelope, but double-sided printing is okay and counts as one page. Stapled papers are not allowed – even though I can staple them myself in any of a dozen places here.
  • Some readers have sent gifts in the form of checks or money orders with their letters. I am thankful for this as it helps with postage, supplies, even food, clothing, telephone, and other expenses. Checks are removed from mail before I receive it, and then deposited into my account. I am sometimes not aware of a check until I receive a monthly statement. Please never feel obliged to do this, but if you do, remember to mention the check and amount.
  • Please do not use a title on the envelope such as “Rev.” or “Fr.” Prison officials have recently
    refused mail to me for having such titles on the envelope – even though I never even see the envelope. The mail is returned to sender without my even knowing about it.
  • I never encourage use of a title on mail as it calls undue attention to the mail, but now it also
    causes mail to be rejected. In the body of your letter, however, you may call me whatever you want – within reason! Please address mail as follows:
