On the right-hand half of a folded sheet of paper is a letter neatly written in black ink on white paper, thin enough to see the words written overleaf. The joined up handwriting is neatly spaced in straight lines and easily decipherable. On the left-hand side, eight lines of Brachygraphy shorthand annotation are written about the stamp and address. Parts of the wax seal remain on the top left corner and bottom left edge.
