Glasgow to Dalmellington, Ayrshire 1820

  • Digital Collection

1820 Entire Letter Bath to Dalmellington, Ayrshire, North Britain, via Glasgow. The EL received a poor BATH circular back-stamp with 109 mileage mark on 23 DE 1820, and a manuscript “1/2” rate charge (one shilling and two pence) for 400 to 500 miles.  The mail may have been routed via Chester as no London mark is apparent.  At Glasgow the double ring cancel incorporates the 405 mileage mark (from London) on 26 DE.
