1046 PC P4 imageJuly 13, 1892 2c UPU Stationery Card to Switzerland with Historical Content, mailed from St John's on JUL.13.1892 and addressed to Switzerland, re-directed twice within. The front shows several Swiss postmarks as well as a red Liverpool SHIP datestamp. The message was written days after the great fire of St John's which occurred on July 8th, and reads "The telegram will have told you of our terrible calamity. Two-thirds of the town were destroyed and five-sixths of the value. The fine buildings are gone - the slums are left. Father and I have nothing but a silver cigar case to remind us of our home. He has £160 in insurance on all his possessions - they were worth at least £500. I have £60 on insurance on at least £200 worth of things. I am well housed in the country with friends. Father is staying with the pilots who have secured a large part of one of the few remaining houses. Father.". A few light creases, still interesting. (Scan 1) (Scan 2) (All Scans)

1048 PC P4 image1904 2c UPU Stationery Card Mailed from Ramah, Labrador to London, England, then Germany, datelined "Rama" April 3, 1904 and addressed to London (AUG.12 c.d.s) through St John's (AUG.3 c.d.s.) then redirected to Germany (Strehlen AUG.14 receiver). There are also two interesting datestamps on front: "Labrador T.P.O. Newf'd" (JUL.28) and "U.S. Government / Despatch Agency / London / AUG.12" double oval in purple. Ramah, in northern Labrador was a Moravian mission established in 1871 and abandoned in 1908 due to supply ships having great difficulty with the ice in Ramah Bay. Probably the reason why there was a delay between when this card was written and when it entered the mails. Back has a lengthy neatly-written message in German. Very fine and rare.

1049 PC P5 image1889 Rare 2c on 1c Surcharged Stationery Post Card, mailed on MAY.15.1889 by Mr. Ohman to Levi and Salaman, in Bermingham England, asking them to send him "one doz. 9 carats sets rings". Postmarked "Late Office St John's / Newf'd" broken circle, which was used between 1886 and 1889, and there is a receiving datestamp from the addressees dated MAY.23. Mr Ohman's Jewelery Store was the designated "Late Office" in 1889 for mailing letters up to 15 minutes before ship departures. Only 700 P3 cards were revalued on May 14th, 1889 due to a shortage of the P4 2c UPU cards. Webb explains that "examples used May-July 1889 are valued at a minimum of $800". Two punch holes at top, still very fine and an extremely rare genuine use of this card. (Scan 1) (Scan 2) (All Scans)

AUG.5.1899 broken circle and addressed to someone at the Moravian School for Boys in Neuwied, Germany (SEP.1 receiver) through St John's (AUG.15 c.d.s. on back).
