Description

Sent by THOM. H. LANGH at Danzig on 27 AUGUST 1782 * 31 sous tariff hand-written on address side (supposedly a bad weather extra charge of 1 sous)– French ENTRY handstamp “D’HOLLANDE” poorly struck as often happened – most likely this letter was carried with other merchants letters sent to a Forwarding Agent – using BOTENSCHAFTEN VIA HAMBURG where several such services and intermediaries were amalgamated in 1821 to form the STADTPOST – at AMSTERDAM on 5 SEPTEMBER CHRISTIAN SPRENGEL another FORWARDING AGENT PLACED THE LETTER IN THE POST OFFICE MAIL STREAM. Docketed: 14 September; responded 17 September **** initials in pencil by postal historian Dr. Migliavacca to attest authenticity *** ALL THE IMAGES, ILLUSTRATIONS & SCANS IN THIS WEBSITE ARE UNDER INTERNATIONAL COPYRIGHT (offenders will be charged with breach of copyright – a CRIMINAL OFFENCE – wherever they are)
