1213 c image1848 missionary's lengthy entire letter headed "Ono Feejee June 17 1848" & signed "David Hazlewood", to his brother in Suffolk, British 'SHIP-LETTER' h/s, London transit b/s of 13AU13/1849 & 'BURY-ST-EDMUNDS' arrival b/s in blue across the flap, rated "8" for an incoming shipletter, rather decrepit & amateurishly "repaired" with glassine strips, which we expect could be greatly improved with some TLC. Ex Gerald Patterson. [Illustrated by David Alford at page 2. He records only six pre-1850 covers from Fiji, of which this is the latest. Ono is a small island in the Kadavu Group, south of Viti Levu. 14 months transit time from the Pacific Islands to England was not unusual in this period] David Hazlewood was a Methodist missionary who, in 1850, published the first 'Feejeean' Grammar and 'Feejeean'/English Dictionary: see Lot 298156.
