Immigration to Australia, Cholera outbreak, JAMAICA postal and social history
1852 entire from Robert Bogle to D.J. Lanman, New York marked "pr. American steamer Sierra Nevada" with red KINGSTON JAMAICA PAID dated JY 24 1852/A rated red "4" with STEAMSHIP 10 Cts. Contents refer to a great many young men finding their way to Australia determined to seek their fortunes with an agent sent to New York to charter a fine vessel to come here and fit out, she is to carry 50 passengers at $200 each, plus we have had very bad accounts from Navy Bay, a number of people who went there (report) more dead than alive, Cholera has broken out among the people, our authorities act with much indifference, An American Steamer is now coming in from Navy Bay, I suppose I fear the accounts by her will be bad, the operations on the Railway are likely to be impeded if cholera breaks out.

Confirmation new 6d rate with locally handstruck "6d", Jamaica postal history
entire headed "Duplicate. Kingston Jamaica 24th June 1854" pmk'd KINGSTON-JAMAICA JY 11 1854 dbl-arc to John Mathie, Stirling, North Britain rated manuscript "6" unpaid confirmed with handstruck "6d" which appears to be in matching ink colour. Red JY 31 1854 (applied London) and red circled M/NR (Morning, Northern Railway applied London) and STIRLING AU 1 1854 in paler black ink. Currently the only known example.
The new 6d rate per half ounce was introduced MR 23 1854. Three experts on UK postal history have been approached and their combined opinion is that the handstruck "6d" is not a British handstamp, and therefore most probably applied at Jamaica (a similar handstruck "6" is known on two ingoing unpaid Barbados entires)
