Default USP Terre Haute - photos etc

Just wondering if anyone happens to know the limit to 'inclusions' for inmates at USP TH please? In particular, how many photos can be included and if I include pages from puzzle books, how many can go in each envelope.

If there's somewhere I can go to verify that info, I'm happy to look it up, I just need to know where to look.

My penpal is 'in the hole' and is getting bored senseless, so wanted to send puzzles for him, but unsure how many I can put in each envelope - and I'm presuming it can be /page not /puzzle!

TIA
Hugs
Nomes

Here's what the Terre Haute A&O Handbook (inmate rules) has to say about limits.
http://www.bop.gov/locations/institu...aohandbook.pdf

The heading includes photographs, but not the explanation. My recollection is 25 photos, but it was not a major issue anywhere I was locked up.

Letters, Books, Photographs, Newspapers, and Magazines:

You are limited to three (3) magazines, eight (8) books and newspapers for the previous seven days. Excessive collections of letters, books and newspapers must be disposed. Publications will be stored in the locker provided. This regulation will be strictly adhered to and there will be no exceptions (not true). Only 25 letters will be permitted for storage in your living quarters. Excessive letters can be sent home through the Mail Room, with the assistance of the unit counselor, at the inmate's expense or disposed of by the inmate.

Thanks fbopnomore....how strict are they on your limits? I've heard some are like the Gestapo and others are like band camp leaders lol

I just want to be able to send photos and puzzle pages to my friend who's in the hole at T.H. and is crying out for cures to his boredom....he's getting a transfer to FL soon so I'll have another set of rules to learn....I'll be able to write handbooks for some facilities soon lol

I guess it depends on the COs, a few "shakers" would harass everyone, but most of them only dealt with actual problems.
