1020 CVR 77 image1901 Cover with Contents from Sir Sandford Fleming. The cover was mailed from Ottawa on DEC.23.1901 to Henry Morgan on Bank Street (very fine). The content is a folded 4 page letter on "Winterholme / Ottawa" embossed stationery (Fleming's estate in Ottawa). In this historically important letter, Fleming explains, among other things, how he helped save Queen Victoria's painting in the Legislative Assembly fire of 1849. Fleming says that the painting was removed from the frame and that once out of the building it was carried by others. He mentions here the names of Curran and McGillivray who are known to have helped save the painting. This disputes the story that philatelists have been telling that Sandford Fleming took the painting home, rolled it up and used it to design the 12d. and then returned the painting to the government of Canada. The letter is missing at least one page, that including his signature, which Morgan probably added to his collection of famous signatures. The cover is docketted with the name of Sir Sandford Fleming, which is what Morgan often did. He also wrote on it that an acknowledgement was sent the next day on December 24th. (Scan a) Est $ 250

Halifax had replaced Portland, Maine for Allan Line winter sailings beginning with the 1876-77 season. Unobtrusive tears on backflap, still a very fine cover. When the newly formed General Postal Union adopted 15 grams (½ ounce) as its basic letter weight in 1875, Canada responded by adopting the same weight structure in January 1876. The letter rate remained 10 cents, but now per half ounce, for mail carried by Canadian packet. (Scan a) Est $ 750
