1914 (June 22) registered linen-lined cover (240x114mm) with 'REICHSBANK-HAUPTKASSE/[Arms]' cachets in blue across the flap & endorsed per "Dampfer Prinzess Alice", from Berlin with Germania 40pf to "Gouvernements- Hauptkasse" (= Treasury) at Rabaul, light spotting & slightly truncated at right. [WWI was declared 4.8.1914 and it is unlikely that this letter ever made it to Rabaul; lengthy article in German included which states the "Princess Alice" left Manila on 8.8.1914 for Yap where she transferred reservists to the SMS "Emden" and gives three possible scenarios : 1) the mail was left with the German Consul in Manila; 2) it was carried by the SMS "Cormoran II" from Yap to Deulon where she arrived on 24.9.1914 (the Deulon Postal Agent reported handing over a sack of mail to the Australians after he closed the office on 25.9.1914); or 3) it remained on board the "Cormoran II" and was confiscated by the Americans after she was detained at Guam on 14.12.1914.] ** Illustration on page 171
