Early Jamaican (Stampless Period)

Lengthy stampless folded letter, starting with a copy of one sent 5 December 1806 [as a precaution for non-receipt], another newly written 8 January 1807 to Mrs Dickson, care of Messrs Timperon & Co., merchants in London, via "packet" from Thomas Hamilton in Moorehall Jamaica, reporting principally on a land boundary dispute to the land owner, and for which the writer intended to obtain professional help. Those interested in real estate boundaries in the area will have plenty to sink their teeth into -- including references back to 1789, a treaty & "the Moorehall Negroes". Joseph Timperon & his associate were established sellers of rum & sugar in London from 1795 to 1830. Belongs in a museum. To emphasize the quality of preservation of this document, its detail, & its legibility of handwriting, we include a view of the second of 3 pages within. $180.00 j

Cover mailed OC 1 1849 at Rugby (blue cancel) by Dr. Dickinson? in Warwickshire (abbreviation below his name) 'per packet' at port OC 2 1849 (orange transit marking) to Louis Mackinson? Esq. at Hals Hall, 4 Paths Post Office, Clarendon [Parish] Jamaica, received at Kingston Jamaica NO 4 1849. Hals Hall, also in Clarendon Parish about 5 miles away, was and still is very small. The rate, which we read as 72, would have included 2 for the ship's captain. $35.00 jge
