LETTER SHEETS - STO: 1918 (Sep) 1d red Die 1 with '1' under the flap BW #LSS5 uprated for the war tax with Adelaide 'PAID D' slogan cancel of 2NOV18, remarkably with the address label intact, central vertical wrinkling, Cat $2000. [The roneo'd letter dated 'September 1918' urges the addressee to read a pamphlet being sent separately & states "[it] will prove to you...that our quarrel is just and righteous...We were driven to take up arms by [Germany's] malignant aggression...our very life depended on checking her lust for world dominion...Australia's quarrel was, and is, the quarrel of Britain and the Empire..." and finally "...if you are convinced...submit your name for the voluntary Recruiting Ballot...". Nine days later the Armistice was signed]
