Basutoland: Xhosa war 1834-1836, 1835, fascinating twice-forwarded three page entire letter headed ""Calédon 22 juillet 1835"", written by missionary Eugène Casalis from the Caledon mission (Bethulie, established by Jean Pierre Péllissier), addressed to the Treasurer of the Société des Missions Évangéliques in Paris. The letter endorsed ""Care of Revd Dr. Philip, Cape Town"" and ""unpaid"", subsequently forwarded to England ""Care of John Foulger esq/Seven Star Alley/Ratcliff Highway/London"" (Board member of the London Missionary Society) paid ""1/2"" ms. in red with ""GENERAL POST OFFICE/AU 13/1835/CAPE OF GOOD HOPE"" crowned oval, thereafter paid to France with Foreign office despatch mark. The Société des Missions Évangéliques de Paris was founded in 1822, the first missionaries arriving in Basuto country in 1833. In April 1866, after the lengthy siege of Thaba Bosiu the Basotho were obliged by the Boers of the Orange Free to sign a treaty which not only ceded 3,000 cattle and much of their land but also forced the expulsion of the French protestants and the burning of the missions. Jean-Eugène Casalis (1812-1891) served as a missionary in Southern Africa for 22 years, afterward directing the Maison des Missions in Paris for a further 25. Together with Constant Gosselin and Thomas Arbousset, Casalis had arrived in Thaba Bosiu in June 1833, founding there one mission and another at Morija. He later became a close confidant of King Moshoshoe, encouraging a closer relationship with the English as the best protection against incursion by the Boers.Dr. John Philip (1775-1851) had been appointed superintendent of the London Missionary Society's stations in South Africa in 1822 and was active in lobbying for the rights of the indigenous and coloured peoples. Outraged by the treatment of the Africans by Governor of the Cape, Sir Benjamin Alfred D'Urban, Philip returned to England in 1836 to give evidence before a parliamentary committee and arouse public opinion in opposition. ''Bethulie was thus the second station of our Society established in the region of the Orange and the Caledon. Without ever having formed part of Basutoland proper, that station was, up to the time of its destruction in 1863, one of the important members of the Basutoland Mission, and during the first years at least, played an important rôle in its history.""

François Daumas (1812-1871) in 1837 founded the mission station at Mekoatleng with his 'recruited' new bride Élisa whom he married in Port Elizabeth on October 18 (Élisa Colani was the sister of Eléonore, wife of fellow missionary Prosper Lemue). Daumas succeeded in creating a friendly, advisory relationship with the local Bataung chief Moletsane. In 1840 Rev. Theophilus Atkinson (1805-1889) of the London Missionary Society had opened a new station at Colesberg but left in Oct. 1847 after his wife, Henriettta, fell ill. Photo.

Basutoland: Boer-Basuto War 1864-1866, 1865 foolscap letter, without outer cover, headed ""Béersélia pays des Bassoutos/le 5 mars 1865"" written by missionary Samuel Rolland, ""Pasteur/Président de la mission française protestante/au pays des Bassoutos"" addressed to Ernest Héritte de la Tour, French Consul at the Cape of Good Hope, sent via the post office at Aliwal North (established in 1858). The letter recommends that a proposed gift from the French Emperor Napoléon III be sent to Chief Moshesh via the Governor of the Cape and the Civil Commissioner at Aliwal, John Burnet, to circumvent the proscription on firearms leaving the colony. An interesting document, reflecting the difficulty of direct French support of its missionaries in the constantly troubled region. Rev. Samuel Rolland (1801-1873) was employed in mission work in South Africa for over 40 years, almost all spent in Basutoland where his mission at Beersheba was once been the most flourishing in the country. In 1858 the mission there was destroyed by a Boer commando and in 1864 Rolland founded New Beersheba at Witpoortjie, 24 miles away. At the time of his death in 1873 it was recorded that more than 160 hymns composed by him in the native language were still read and sung. Photo.

Falkland Islands: 1982 Conflict, Airmail cover with enclosed letter from Goose Green dated Apr. 22, franked by 1700p. pair cancelled by type II c.d.s. of Apr. 30, addressed to the Isle of Wight. The only known letter sent successfully from Goose Green during the Occupation, having been sent to her aunt and uncle by Teena Ferguson whilst held by the Argentinian forces at the Community Centre. In her letter Miss Ferguson comments, ''At the moment everything is very quiet and one hell of a bore!! About 200 Argies have set up a camp out here at ''Darwin School''. Last I heard there were something like 9000-10,000 troops here altogether! Although they have only admitted to a couple of deaths on their side during the 2 hour battle, I believe there were quite a lot more.'' Upon receipt of the letter this information regarding troop deployment and strength was immediately passed by Miss Thompson's family to the Admiralty prior to the Task Force's arrival at the Islands. It is speculated that the obliging manner in which the Argentinian authorities transmitted the letter uncensored and without undue delay may have been due to a failure to recognize the Isle of Wight as part of the British Isles! Miss Ferguson later noted that she and others had written ''literally dozens of letters during that first three weeks, none of which reached their destination. Teena Ferguson later married a member of 2 Para who liberated her from her ordeal, the couple and their family settling on the family farm on Weddell Island. Photo.

We have fed on whale, but it has a strong taste. It is not so palatable as crocodile or penguin or seal.'', some faults but an excellent item. The ''Endurance'' left South Georgia on Dec. 5, this card written just before its departure. Leonard Hussey (1891-1964) had seeved in France and Russia during W.W.I and joined the expedition as a meteorologist. He was well liked for his humour and enthusiasm for the banjo. When the men were only permitted 2lb of personal effects after the sinking of the ''Endurance'' Shackleton allowed Hussey's banjo to be saved, despite it being way above the allowance. Photo.

(angled for symbolic 'kiss') and one of only seven inward items known sent via the Magistrate at South Georgia. John Vincent (1884-1941) was unpopular with the crew of the ''Endurance'' and was demoted from Bosun to Able Seaman. Afterward Shackleton kept a watchful eye and ensured that Vincent accompany him, both on the voyage to Elephant Island and the dramatic crossing in the ''James Caird'' to South Georgia. On arrival Vincent was too ill to continue on the journey across the mountains and was later picked up by a whaler which called in at Grytviken to collect mail including this item (as noted by Shackleton in ''South'', p.208).
