Why do letters have return addresses? I thought when your letter leaves your hand, it becomes "official property of the United States Postal Service?" Why would they abdicate that right and give the letter back?

As a curtesy the USPS will return a letter that has a non-existent address, also if a letter has insufficient postage the USPS will return it so the correct postage may be put on it.
