1840 a 1d Mulready wrapper which in Irish protest of the allegorical design has been addressed upside-down to Kinsale, Ireland, being sent from London and dated on reverse for MY 19 1840, cancelled by an orange-red Maltese cross with an arrival mark on reverse for MY 21 1840. This is a most unusual use of a Mulready, which is possibly unique and we do not often use this word! This cover is accompanied with an 1840 1d black plate 1b l/t F. On a wrapper placed upside-down and on the wrong side in Irish protest at the Queens head from Co Wexford in the east of Ireland addressed to a cheese factor in Bristol, being tied by a red Maltese cross of Enniscorty and dated on reverse for FE 8 1841. These two examples, showing the first Great Britain Victorian issues of postal stationery and adhesive labels aptly illustrate in their use, the Irish disillusionment of British rule, which was fermented at this time by Daniel OConnell and the question of Corn Laws.
