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.
This letter was addressed to Messrs Wilkins & Kendall, Solicitors Bourton on the Water Glocestershire. It was prepaid, and the cost was 7d, which covered a distance between 30 and 50 miles. It has a Warwick dated postmark, and an unframed, straight-line TOO LATE mark.
