Kanada 1755

Kanada (CANADA & B.N.A) - Kanada 1755

Canada entire letter from New France (french colonial period) "Quebec 2 aout 1755" send to Montauban / France with 8 sols postage due and a light "LA ROCHELLE" postal marking (Lenain #7), on back manuscript forwarder "acheminé par votre trés humble serviteur / J Malroux /le 16 7bre". The contents mentions the transatlantic shipping of the cover by a french navy ship "celle cy passe par une fregatte de roy". A 1749 Quebec cover to Montauban was sold in the Steinhart collection (lot1005) as "one of the earliest covers in private hands from Canada to France with a postal marking" for 18 500 EURO (including the fees),but what makes this 1755 cover even more exceptional is that it seems to be the only known with a forwarder agent marking (none in the Nickle or Steinhart collections !)
