Title: 1862 Letter from Grimsby to Paris
Author: H. Josse
Date: A January 2018 scan of an original 1862 letter
Comments:

The postmarks show that the letter was posted in Grimsby on June 8th 1862. It reached London, Calais and then Paris just a day later, on 9th June. Faster than today's post!

The Queen Victoria four penny red stamp is in fine condition and is franked with the Grimsby '323' PO number.

I think it will require a native French speaker to translate the long letter.
