original 1807 letter with ‘ship’ post mark

 

an original one-side written letter from a Miss / Mrs. Hopper of Paddington, London to her nephew Samuel Elliot in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. 

 

the letter carries a ‘ship’ post mark, together with a Boston mark dated October 7th, and the name of the ship that carried the letter – probably ‘Borneo’.

 

the content of the letter is basically a gentle reminder to keep in touch…..
