1881 Overseas mail. Neat cover to Sydney N.S.W. prepaid at the 6d per ½oz rate by a 6d Grey Pl.17 (Wmk. Crown) neatly cancelled by a South Stockton "732" duplex for MY.19.1881. Sydney arrival cds on reverse for JY.30.1881. Routed Via Brindisi this cover would have been carried by P&O steamers "Bangalore" (Brindisi-Alexandria), "Indus" (Suez-Galle) and "Hydaspes" (Galle to Sydney). With a scheduled arrival in Sydney on the 1st of July, the date of the 30th on the reverse of the cover is probably due to the month slug being changed for the new month but the date slug inadvertently forgotten.
