    1855 (1 Jun) envelope (with contents) from London addressed to Melbourne 'To be left at the post office till called for', with 1854-55 2d Blue Watermark Small Crown Perf 14 ('DK') and Perf 16 ('RD' and 'RE') tied by '16' numerals. Carried on the clipper 'Donald Mackay' leaving Liverpool 5 June, and with handstruck '1d' in red to indicate accountancy due to Victorian P.O. Reverse with 'SHIP LETTER/FREE/G.P.O. VICTORIA' cds in red (AU 27 1855) and with endorsement 'Opened by a person of the same name 18/10', subsequently handstruck 'ADVERTISED/AND/UNCLAIMED' and mss '2' added. (It seems unlikely that two persons with the surname 'Duon' were in Melbourne at this time, and the intended recipient may have opened and read the letter, then denied it was intended for him to avoid the 2d payment)
