1836, stampless folded letter paid 9d to Montreal and carried from Montreal by a private sailing ship to Liverpool. Charged 1/7 Stg representing 8d ship fee and 11d inland to London England. For a short period at the end of the 1830’s, Montreal used a ‘’ship’’ straight line h/s (as outbound ship letter marking). Since most ship letters for Montreal were handled through and marked at Quebec, this Montreal marking is rarely seen. Only 4 examples have been recorded. Letter enclosed. A Rarity and the first we recall offering! HD0000037
