This framed cachet, struck in black, appears on two letters addressed to Wenchow, China. One was posted in France on 23.2.18, but the stamps have floated off and the town of origin is illegible; the other was posted in Portugal and still bears a single Portuguese stamp with illegible postmark, the others having floated off and taken their postmarks with them. This cover, which had its origin in Lisbon, shows on the back the Shanghai arrival mark of 6 MAY 18.
