V. I. I. STAHLE/ABORIGINAL MISSION STATION/LAKE CONDAH' cachet in violet on back, some staining and edge faults. [The Church of England Lake Condah Mission Station was established in 1867 with Johann Heinrich Stahle appointed in 1875 to run it, a position he occupied for 38 years until his retirement in June 1913. This is only the second item we have seen from the Mission Station, neither of which are recorded by Stieg & Watson]
