    1867: Entire letter from Alexandria addressed to the Italian Consul in Cairo, correctly sent stampless and struck with POSTE VICE-REALI EGIZIANE / ALESSANDRIA cds (Jan 12) in black. Taxed as unpaid with "80" (paras) due marking for double the deficiency, this amount deleted when the Cairo P.O. realised the item was of a Consular nature and thus free of charges. Reverse with PVRE Cairo cds of arrival (same day). A fine and very scarce entire. Signed Todd AIEP.
