1877 January 15 folded letter, complete with contents, from ST. THOMAS, via LONDON and CALAIS to PARIS, France, with all transit markings, etc. On reverse, originating ST. THOMAS "A" 20 mm 15 January postmark (Facit #31 black; DWI MAILS 2000 BR19d). Arriving in LONDON 29 January on reverse, then (on front) French "ANGL. / AMB. CALAIS" transit for incoming mail from England, and then on reverse PARIS, all still on the 29th. On front bears British due marking in BLUE "T / 1-10" (listed in DWI MAILS 2000 as Anglo-French accounting mark BR32c with a value premium range of $300-600) -- this is the first example of this marking that I can recall having had in the last 45 years. Following that is a French "17" due marking. The content is an unusual and attractive business letter in Spanish. It is also unusual to find stampless letters this late; by this time most mail outbound from DWI was pre-paid with stamps, but in a few cases, the recipient was still willing to tolerate paying the postage. To add to the interest of this unusual cover, the British post office in DWI ceased operations 31 August 1877. I believe that this is the latest DWI-originated stampless cover to a foreign country that I have had in 45 years.
