Snail's Postcard Post

Sampson’s letter

Mama Snail’s boyfriend, Andrew, found an interesting little envelope among some keepsakes.IMG_5524

The empty envelope is smaller than in this photo, about the length of a business card. British-born Andrew recalls someone on the family tree named Arthur Sampson, but he’s not sure. So what we have is a mysterious little envelope with beautiful handwriting, two one-penny stamps that suggest it was sent from the British territory of Gibraltar, and a 1926 postmark.  IMG_5525
