1888 cover to Cape Town with a pair of 1d’s tied by barred ‘333’ obliterators. At the lower left is a FOREST HALL DE 6 88 datestamp. On the back of the cover are Plettenbergs Bay DE 6 and Cape Town DE 11 transit and arrival cancels. Forest Hall was an estate 23 kms from Plettenbergs Bay. Mail from there is very uncommon and this fine ‘proving’ cover has the original letter written by Caroline Newdigate, a daughter of the Forest Hall Estate owner.
