1878 envelope to Colchester, England, endorsed ‘Via Suez’ with four 2d’s cancelled by numeral ‘86’ cancellers of GAYNDAH. A ‘TOO LATE’ handstamp is on the front of the cover. GAYNDAH JU 25 1878, Brisbane JY 2 and Colchester SP 16 78 datestamps are on the back. This 8d rate would have paid the 6d postage and 2d late fee. Gayndah is 200 miles north west of Brisbane. Minor cover faults hardly detract.
