VICTORIA - Postal History

1855 stampless OHMS part-entire to the Postmaster General with postmaster's endorsement "Lockwood PO/May 22 55" at lower-left, Melbourne arrival b/s & Butterfly '14' in red as a receiving mark, minor blemishes. Lockwood (2) PO opened c.-/2/1855 but some 3 months later, apparently had still not received a datestamp or numeral. The letter states "I...request that two small mail bags be forwarded to this office for the use of Sandhurst & Lockwood Mails...A Inglis/PS The horse which carried the missing mail was found a few days ago at Clark's Station Mt Cole with the saddle still upon his back but the mail bag was gone". [Brian Peace, in "Mail Robberies by Bushrangers" lists no incidents between June 1848 and June 1861. However, this may well be a robbery-related item]
