Descripción

2pp., 8vo. On aged and worn paper. The side headed '1837. Irish Mails. DOWN' with timetable arranged in two columns, under headings: 'To Kingston via Holyhead', 'To Waterford (P) via Gloucester and Milford', and 'To Waterford (P) via Bristol and Pembroke'. Footnote reads: 'It may be curious to note that the present train mail service is under the liability of a penalty of £1 14s. for each minute it is after time through any avoidable cause.' The table on the other side arranged lengthwise on the page, with one section relating to the service from St. Martin's-Le-Grand (London) to Falmouth, and the other on the same service in the opposite direction. The autograph note, at the foot, is in three sections. The first section is scored through, and reads: 'There must surely be some mistake here | It gives a difference of nearly 5 hours between London & Exeter, & what could have been the use of the slow mail?' The second section reads: 'Upon further consideration & looking I see the slow mail is only a prolongation of the Bath mail, & practically therefore is only a local mail.' Third section: 'Not in the first column is the one commonly called the Devonport or Quicksilver'. N° de ref. de la librería 16368
