A very fine cover franked with the 3c orange red Queen Victoria stamp from the 1870-1897 Small Queen Issue. Sent from what appears to be Ancaster to the same batallion commander as the 1880 letter, but this time to Wardsville, on August 20, 1875. Franked with a single perf. 11.5 x 12 orange red Small Queen. The letter is present and appears to be from a young soldier by the name of Daniel Johnston, requesting a character reference from the recipient. Very fine. Covers from this period containing original correspondence are scarce, particularly in this condition. Est. $35.
