    1857 (4 Sep) entire to Launceston with ''Emu Bay 4 Sepr'' manuscript postmaster''s endorsement and ''Registered 2/8'' in red, and boxed ''PRE-PAID'' arrival datestamp in red on reverse. The letter from one Richard Lennard orders supplies and notes ''I enclose £28''. From the issue of stamps in November 1853 postage and registration were required to be paid by adhesives, and this entire indicates that Emu Bay (Burnie from 1/1/1882) had run out of stamps; the 2/8d rate can be interpreted as 4d x 5 + 1/- registration fee for a 2-2½oz letter, but may also represent a double weight letter on which the postmaster has charged 2 x 4d and (erroneously) 2 x 1/- registration fee. Some minor soiling, but an interesting item
