Reference to this topic which I posted earlier today, I have now found old files with instruction for attachments. So here is my scan of the letter front. Could you please help identify the significance of the final 3 letters? As there are stops between them I did not think they are merely an abbreviation for "Letter".

Thank you.

The "L.T.R." on OHMS items usually stands for "Land Tax Registry".

The franking signature is Francis Freeling, the Post Office Secretary -- he seems to have ended up having to sign a lot of OHMS letters that had nothing in particular to do with the Post Office, but I'm not sure why! Possibly it was while they were waiting for Parliament to authorise somebody in the relevant office to do it?

Hi
I really appreciate this clarification. Shame it's just a front, but if you do find an explanation of Freeling's involvement, I am very grateful for your interest & help.
Thank you.
