1834 Sale

Sometimes it is the contents that are more interesting than the postal markings.  Here is an entire from Monksilver to Wiveliscombe in September 1834, with a blurred unboxed "No.10" receiving house handstamp and a Taunton dated Penny Post handstamp.

The contents are a letter detailing the contents of an upcoming sale.

Half the items are somewhat agricultural ... Horse, Harness, Colt ... a Sull is a plow ...
