I have a twopenny Mulready cover mailed from Dublin to Belfast in 1840. It bears an oval Imperial Hotel cachet with "Post-Paid" in the centre. I haven't seen a hotel cachet with reference to post paid in it before (but I haven't seen many). Does anyone know if this was an official Post Office mark or just an internal hotel accounting mark?

Peter Wood is his GBPS display last Saturday (27 April) of "Ireland: 1839 to the Easter Rising" showed three different hotel cachets from Dublin. I didn't register what they showed. Perhaps if you ask Peter he can assist you?

thank you for your response. Could you please tell me how I can contact Peter Wood. I live in Australia, so I am not well connected to other members!

Bob,

No wonder you were not at the meeting in London last Saturday.

I suggest through the Programme Secretary, Andy Donaldson FRPSL, programme@gbps.org.uk
