1872 mourning cover to Texas USA - an unusual destination - with DLR 2d (defective) & Laureate 1/- tied by fine 'BALLAARAT - 5' duplex, London & New York transits in red on the face, a little aged & slightly truncated at right. [The letter (repaired with archival tape), from "Robt Gibbs" to his step-son tells the addressee that his mother has died of "valvular disease of the heart" despite a doctor recommending "having blisters on her stomach" (clearly no clue!) & continues "...grief is killing me. Oh I am desolate...every object is a reminder of my lost love. I had but one companion - one loved one - she is gone & I am alone..." His pain is palpable & the letter is truly moving. There is a reference to his wife having been from Franklin Louisiana and she may have emigrated after the Civil War. US dealer Richard Frajola has advised us that more Southerners moved to Australia than to any other country bar Mexico]

1875 mourning cover & matching letter from London to Wiltshire with GB 1d only but uncancelled and clearly missent to Melbourne where a very fine strike of the boxed 'DETAINED FOR/("6D") POSTAGE' h/s applied, a bit soiled & a couple of minor defects. The cover not being claimed, it was sent to the Dead Letter Branch ('DLB' b/s in green) where it was opened to ascertain the sender, upon which it became clear the item had originated in England. The 'DETAINED...' h/s was crossed-through, a Melbourne duplex applied though the stamp remained uncancelled, & it was re-sent to 'CORSHAM' (arrival b/s) as originally addressed. A remarkable item.

1893 remarkable usage of GB 1d Postal Card to Albany (unframed arrival b/s), re-addressed - the original address is underneath the WA stamps - to the sender in England with d x5 tied by 'FREMANTLE/... - F' duplex, 22mm 'TRAVELLING-POST-OFFICE/ A /WA' transit cds of AU11/93 (inwards) on the reverse or AU18/93 (on the face), a few very minor blemishes. Extraordinary! [The sender asked for his enquiry to be answered by the card being re-addressed & two d stamps affixed. The recipient advised that he had to pay the letter rate of 2d. The absence of an outgoing Albany postmark suggests the card was posted aboard the train]
