1840 entire letter (partly cross-written) headed "Ship Perfect Bass Straits/19 December 1840" to Scotland with very fine oval 'PAID SHIP LETTER/SYDNEY' d/s in red, rated "3" in red & "8" in black, unusually with 'INDIA LETTER/PLYMOUTH' b/s & odd 'JUN/C 4 A/1841' arrival b/s in red, a little soiled. [Writer details the route from "Rio Janeiro" [sic], Tristan da Cunha (!!), Cape Town, St Paul's [French Southern & Antarctic Territories!!], St George's Sound [Albany, WA] & Port Philip Bay [Melbourne]. "...Port Philip appears at this time to be the magnet of attraction in this part of the world...The town of Melbourne is a wonderful place...people & money is what they want more than merchandise..." Then from Sydney 5/1/1841 "...completing our journey in half a year & two days..." and signed "John Mackensie", to his father of the same name]
