(filing note) to London charged "5[d]" and then "11[d]" (the 1d Ship Letter rate + 4d to Dublin + 6d on to London) having a mainly very fine rare large Cork "SHIP" mark nicely placed on the front beside a faint matching "CORK" mark; also having partly fine large black Dublin "FE/25" and London brown "4/MR" Bishop Marks on the flap beside a partial Dublin "COUNTRY" mark. Lloyds List (pcopy included) show that this letter was carried by the 'Betty' (Captain Wilkinson) that arrived at Cork from New York on 21 Feb. 1771. Rare Irish Ship Letter of the American Colonial Period. Cork's regular "CORK/SHIP LETTER" mark has not been recorded before 1779; earlier Cork Ship Letters are seldom seen.Cross Reference: TRANSATLANTIC MAIL, IRELAND PRE-1922 - POSTAL HISTORY, SHIP LETTERS, MARITIME MAIL (Image)

Although there are no contents or filing notes, there is a French "N. DANGOUMOIS" watermark as well as the faint offset of a small part of the letter's contents on the reverse. Careful scanning - print included - has revealed that it is the end of the letter (typed transcript & translation included; ref. a shipment of flour being sent under a "English Flag" by the ship "Belle" - with the signature of "Gamon" (presumably of the influential Basque family of San Sebastian). The only suitable 1773/4 voyage from Spain to Philadelphia was that of the 'Nancy' which docked on 26 May 1773. (With detailed research notes.)

838   imageFAIRFIELD (CONN.) - RARE COLONIAL PERIOD "Fd. 4" & "To pay 1/-" MARKINGS + RARE "IND. AND PACT./POSTAGE"; 5 Sept. 1774 E (short flap cut and attached to larger flap to show faint "NEW YORK" transit backstamp intact) from "Fairfield, Conn." (filing endorsement) to London has the very rare Fairfield P.O.’s Manuscript “Fd.4” – the earliest known (per ASCC; cat. $1500 in 1997) Fairfield postal marking and one of only a handful of recorded Colonial Period markings from this small town. The Fairfield “4[dwt]” (silver weight) rate (54 miles to NY; ‘up to 60 miles’) at top right was then converted to sterling (red manuscript “To pay 1/-” Colonial rate) in transit in New York (faint “NEW YORK” and fine matching NY “20/SE” Franklin Mark on the reverse). On arrival in London (fine “10/NO” Bishop Mark on reverse) the total sterling postage due of “2N” (2s-0d) - for the American (1s-0d) plus British Packet (1s-0d) rates - was marked alongside the very rare London Foreign Branch’s distinctive “IND. AND PACT.)/POSTAGE)” mark of which only 8 examples have been recorded in private hands. It is remarkable that the inland American postal rate - for only 54 miles - was the same as the full Packet rate right across the Atlantic including the inland British postage from Falmouth to London (270 miles)!! Very rare Colonial Period Manuscript marking on a Transatlantic cover.Cross Reference: TRANSATLANTIC MAIL, LONDON POSTAL HISTORY, POSTAGE DUE MARKS (Image) (Image2)
