1906 cover to British Columbia endorsed "Post Cards", badly damaged in transit from being over-packed, mss "T30" & Canadian "12cts due" with Canadian Postage Due 2c x6 tied to the reverse by 'NANAIMO' cds, apparently returned to the sender endorsed "on almost every packet I had to pay that much or more. Safe [sic] this for your collection as it is"! Full of character! [The letter rate was 2d per oz so 3d did not cover the second weight step. However, by endorsing the cover "Post Cards", the sender may have expected that the Printed Matter rate of 1d per 2oz would apply, and it is debatable whether the cover was underpaid at all]

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]
