''I write you this so hurriedly because I am just informed that Mr. Lowray the late Land Governor down at Falklands is going suddenly home tomorrow'' the sender urges Crowgey to hasten publication of the proposal as, among other advantages, the plan would certainly ''overawe the French''. Ten days before the arrival of the letter on Jan. 24 1840 the Colonial Land and Emigration Commission was created and in August produced a report in which the advanced development of the islands as a colony was advocated - including a penal colony.

Falkland Islands: 1951, ''FALKLAND ISLANDS/'John Biscoe'/DE 7/51/POSTED ON BOARD'' cancellations, five strikes tying Overprint 1/2d., 1d., Thin Map 1/2d., 1d., 21/2d., 3d. and 9d. to both sides of envelope addressed to noted K.G.VI specialist Frederick Bentley Kettle (1904-1967) in Cheshire with ms. registration marking ''R 2378/2'' at lower left but without further postal markings. One of four known covers showing this unusual cancellation, dated on the day of departure from Stanley of the ''John Biscoe'' for the South Shetlands and first recorded in 1980. Two of the four covers have Kettle's handstamped address, the two others appear to be addressed in Kettle's own hand. In the absence of further evidence it it is currently assumed that this cancellation was a 'fantasy' production.
