C/L

1833 letter re William Hopwood of Guildford having been given permission to visit Sydney, signed by the Principal Superintendent (of Convicts?), very fine; 1853 Affidavit of parties wishing to marry, rather soiled; and 1874 OPSO cover with very fine '[crown]/FREE/23JY23/1874' cds of Hobart, 'RICHMOND' arrival b/s, minor blemishes.

1838 entire headed "Great Swan Port 14th Sepr 1838" & signed "Geo Meredith", to Hobart rated "6" with small boxed '19SE19/1838' arrival b/s, "6" scored-through & re-rated "1" because the addressee, Sgt Killivin, was a soldier; plus a promissory note - rejoined (?) or repaired along central split - also signed by Meredith. A significant rarity: believed to be the only recorded inland Soldier's Rate letter from the pre-stamp period. [Great Swanport on the NE coast, was renamed Swansea c.1863. George Meredith was granted land on Oyster Bay in 1821] (Qty 2 items)

1855 entire headed "Empression Bay 1855/November 25" & signed "Ed BA Hardy/Westmoreland", to Lancashire endorsed "Convict Letter" & at U/L "Exd/AJV/I Kerr" (= Examined), GPO cds & '[crown]/FREE' cds of the same date, 'AUSTRALIAN/LIVERPOOL/26MR/56/=PACKET=' transit & 'KENDALL' arrival b/s, minor defects. Ex Michael Blake.

Impression Bay Probation Station was located on the northern shore of the Tasman Peninsula, on the site of Premaydena. Edward Hardy had the dubious distinction of having been transported three times!, firstly to Bermuda in 1833; then to VDL in 1841 for seven years; finally again to VDL in 1849 for life. This is extraordinary because it was a term of a convict's parole that he was not to return to England. The reference to "Westmoreland" is to the ship on which he arrived in 1841. He states "...I have been in a great deal of trobele through drink...[I] will put myself to better may please god..."

Endorsed "Printed Book with Photographs..." & signed "Molesworth Jeffery" which permitted mailing at the concessional rate for a "book packet" + 6d registration.
