2256   imageFIRST "GREENOCK, ARDRISHAIG AND ROTHESAY MAILS CONTRACT" - OFFICIAL GOVERNMENT PRINTING; Fine printed 21 Nov. 1867 foolscap-size (folded to fit album-page) House of Commons Return being the full 3-page text of the 30 Oct./1 Nov. 1867 Mail Contract and of the Nov. 1867 Treasury memo about the Hutcheson & Co. mail service having been expanded to provide the same service in winter as in summer for an additional £100 p.a. The Contract includes fascinating details of the Hutcheson/MacBrayne Agreement to carry the mails (incl. newspapers) for the Post Office from 1 November 1867, incl. the need to deliver mails regularly to "Dunoon and Innellan" and other places, to provide enough steamers each having "a suitable chest or locker, with lock and key, for deposit ing the mails in...", "Post Office rules to be made", etc., etc. Fascinating reading; the first example of this contract that we can recall having seen.

2257   imageUNRECORDED & EARLIEST KNOWN (?) "LORD OF THE ISLES" COVER - PURPLE GARTER FLAP-DEVICE; 23 Aug. 1877 env. (minor dusting and slightly roughly opened at top) to Dumfries with 1d Red tied by a very fine "GREENOCK/163" Duplex and an arrival cds (24 Aug.) on the reverse; the envelope has an apparently unrecorded large purple device printed in purple on the flap inscribed "GLASGOW & INVERARY STEAMBOAT Coy." around an oval garter (very reminiscent of the KEVII-period cachets; small ink mark at top barely detracts) within which are two pennant flags, one plain and one displaying the words "LORD OF THE ISLES". This steamer undertook her first sea trial on 30 June 1877, so this envelope design must have been the very first to have been used on board. We can find no record of any other examples of this 'Lord of the Isles' envelope having been recorded. [Two Aug./Sept. 1879 covers with the ship's oval cachet in Cavendish's 'Ecosse' and 'Roger Hosking' auctions of Sept. 1999 and Dec. 2014 realised £647 and £675 inc. BP respectively.] No pre-1878 Greenock named steamer cover appears to have been recorded previously, making this an Important 'Page One' Exhibition Item for any Scottish Steamers collection.
