RARE “HORATIO HARDY” signed (forwarded from the Jerusalem Coffee House) cover to India dt 17 Jan. 1828 forwarded by another Agent from Calcutta to “Goruckpore” (received there 6 June) with only Calcutta arrival backstamps. Hardy was proprietor of the famous Jerusalem Coffee House from c.1815 – 1840, but his signed Forwarded letters (always to India) are only recorded from 1823 to 1828. In his way he was as important a character in Anglo-Indian Postal History as Thomas Waghorn. Angus Parker spent many years trying to find another cover but failed. Rare Indian Mails Exhibition Item.
