Bath 1838 and 1843

Here are a couple of items from Bath, the first a Penny Post cover with a boxed "No.3" handstamp from 1838.  This handstamp was in use at the Walcot/Grosvenor receiving house.  The writer of the entire, Wade Brown, lived at Monkton Farleigh manor house from 1842 and built "Brown's Folly" using agricultural labour during slack time.

This next item is a cover that was mis-directed to Bath in 1843, with the maltese cross cancel on a turned over piece of the postage stamp.
