Pill entire, October 1840, with Unboxed "No.7" Receiving House Handstamp

The entire below was written by the captain on board ship on "Sunday morning Oct 4th off Lundy" and would have been posted in Pill by the pilot on 8th October 1840.  It was not paid in advance so incurred 2d postage due.

The receiving house in Pill had a boxed "No.7" receiving house handstamp from 1834, and was given the unboxed handstamp in 1840.
