Gregory Field, William Rutter and John Greentree, endorsed ''The Governor's Attestation to be/presented to the Company'' and providing an account of the conduct of Capt. Anthony Beale with mention of astronomer Edmund Halley, without postal markings having been carried by a Company vessel. Settlement of Saint Helena had begun in 1659. Gregory Field had been appointed Governor on Dec. 19 1673 but was dismissed during the first half of 1678 due to his ''proneness to excess in drinking''. The controversial figure of Anthony Beale against whom accusations had been made, had served as Governor before the forcible occupation by the Dutch East India Company during the early months of 1673. At this time he held the positions of Deputy Governor, Captain of one of the two occupying companies of Foot and Husband of Stores. He is reported to have died in 1685 ''poisoned by his black servant'' (Derrick). William Rutter was one of the leaders of the 1684 Mutiny and was subsequently executed in Nov. 1685. Edmund Halley (of Halley's Comet renown) arrived on the island in Feb. 1677 and set up an Observatory to study stars visible from the Southern Hemisphere, departing in early 1678. Ex Willcocks.

Stefan Heijtz Saint Helena: The First Post Office 1815-21: Inland official mail, letter with red wax seal carried by messenger headed ''St. Helena 27th August 1819'' and addressed ''On His Majestys Service/To/Dr. Verling/Longwood'' and endorsed from ''G. Nicholls/Dy. Judge Advocate''. The letter formally requests Verling's attendance at the court martial on H.M.S. ''Conqueror'' of surgeon John Stokoe (1775-1852) who had attended Napoleon on five occasions between Jan. 17 and Jan. 21 1819, diagnosing a chronic infection of the liver. Stokoe had refused the instructions of Governor Sir Hudson Lowe to spy on the former emperor and was accused of several breaches of conduct in dealing with the French party. As a result of the court martial Stokoe was dismissed from the Navy having been convicted, among other charges, of having communicated to Napoleon that he heard from Napoleon's former doctor, Barry O'Meara (earlier dismissed by Lowe) that the Governor had encouraged O'Meara to ''put an end to the existence of General Bonaparte.''. Capt. George Nicholls (1781-1865) of the 66th Regiment, a veteran of the Peninsular War, served as Orderly Officer at Longwood from Sept. 5 1818 to to Feb. 9 1820 as well as fulfilling the role of Deputy Judge Advocate. Dr. James Roche Verling (1787-1858), a fellow veteran, had sailed to the island as a fellow passenger in the ''Northumberland'' with Napoleon and resided at Longwood from Aug. 1818 to provide medical assistance if required. However Napoleon, enraged at Stokoe's treatment, refused the future services of any British doctor until Apr. 1821, a few weeks before his death. The competence of the Corsican doctor, François Antommarchi, who had been engaged in the meantime, was regularly questioned, not least by Napoleon himself. Photo.

Charles Dallas (1767-1855) became Colonel of the St. Helena Regiment of Infantry in 1827 and served as the last East India Co. Governor of the island from Dec. 5 1827 until the takeover by the Crown on Apr. 22 1834, continuing thereafter until Feb. 24 1836 pending the arrival of the first Crown Governor. During his time in office he proposed the building of Jacob's Ladder, which was completed in Jan. 1830 and moved the entrance gate of the town to its present position. In 1832 the Dallas family had moved from Plantation House to Longwood New House due to the smell from the drains and occurrences of typhoid. Ex Art Groten. Photo.

The fascinating letter, addressed to Lt. Charles J.B. Riddell at the Magnetic Observatory in Toronto by Lt. John H. Lefroy, concerns scientific observations, part of a British study of terrestrial magnetism, with references to a proposed expedition by Enderby to search for ""the land D'Urville professes to have discovered"" (Antarctica?), and a first hand account of the exhumation of Napoleon's body. Observatories in Canada and Tasmania were selected as approximate to the points of the greatest intensity of magnetic force in both hemispheres and Saint Helena as approximate to the point of least intensity. Riddell (1817-1903) and Lefroy (1817-1890) had left England for their postings in the autumn of 1839, Riddell to establish the Canadian observatory (his first choice of Montreal was overruled) and Lefroy travelling to Saint Helena with the ships of the Ross Expedition to become the first director of the Longwood observatory. In 1842 Lefroy transferred to Toronto, remaining in Canada and carrying out advanced field studies until 1853. He later became Governor of Bermuda and Administrator of Tasmania. Riddell returned to England in 1841 for health reasons but continued his work, serving later with distinction in the Crimea and India. Photo.

Malaysia: Malayan Postal Union: Postage Dues 1966 50c. black, a fine mint example of this rare stamp. This stamp is one of the rarest issued stamps of the Commonwealth. In 1968, by chance, a collector living in Singapore made an appointment to look at the stamp stock of postage dues on the day of their withdrawal resulting from Singapore's decision to issue their own postage due stamps. The collector (Derek Clayton) noticed the different watermark on the 50 cent of the set he was buying and asked if he could buy some more. The stamps he purchased that day are the main source of mint stamps in public hands. He managed to purchase twenty-five in total and was later able to establish that there were only another seven mint examples in private hands. From the very small number of used stamps, apparently equally rare, it appears clear that this stamp was supplied only to Singapore and, as further confirmation of this, the examples in the Crown Agents archive at the British Library are marked ''SINGAPORE''. Whilst the main Post Office used up the Watermark Mult. Script CA issue 50c., any new post offices (for example, Katong) were supplied with the Watermark Block CA issue. We note that there was no block of this stamp in the Clayton collection when it was sold, but that he had been persuaded to sell a block to HM the Queen. Indeed, the Crown Agents original block was of six but is now of five, with a note that one stamp has been officially removed and sent to the Palace. Clayton had also consigned one block to a rarities auction and this has changed hands several times since. R.P.S. certificate (2008). S.G. D30. Photo.
