The payment of postage in the early 19th century

Eunice Shanahan

These letters graciously have been shared with the Victorian Web by Eunice and Ron Shanahan; they have been taken from their website. The letters give an insight into the daily lives and concerns of 'ordinary' people without whom history would not exist. The letters are a wonderful example of how much history may be gleaned from such sources.

Cover of a letter that cost 8d to send the letter to the solicitor in Highworth, 82 miles away.
