Bundle-label noting that 6 "unpaid" letters had been sent that day to "[Market] Harb[o]ro[ugh]" P.O. and initialled "JG" [Jonathon Gilbert] by the Derby Postmaster personally. These labels accompanied each group of inter-P.O. letters in the prestamp period, but only a handful have survived.

Prepaid letters sent on this day are understandably very rare - most people waited a day to save a lot of postage! Plus rare 7 Dec. 1839 EL to Baslow charged "8" during the Uniform 4d-Postage Period due to its having weighed above the ½oz & up to 1oz.
