Old Down boxed "No.15" used in November 1822

The entire below, dated 9th November 1822, has a crisp boxed "No.15" receiving house handstamp.  This handstamp was used at Old Down and this entire brings the known dates of use earlier, into 1822.  The crispness of the handstamp indicates that it was near the beginning of its life.
