Woodgate. Pen and ink drawing with brown water-color shading of a Three Pence design and a suggested oval cancellation. Both are in the margin of the first page of the filing ledger , illustrating the text of the three letter s from Woodgate of April 21, 22 and 23 , 1851. In one be suggests: " l would further sug gest that the Head to be so mething similar to that represented in the margin; the field lo be blue instead of red , or any other color His Excellency would prefer. " The two drawings have been cut out and replaced. An exceptional item of particular historical interest and pre sumabl y unique as the original letter bas never been reported (lE)
