Hi All,
Any help with the following query would be appreciated.

Images attached of one of 3 letters we have addressed to Lord Archibald Hamilton, between 1765 and 1798.

The Receiving house stamp of Charing Cross unpaid Penny Post stamp is on the front
The Westminster office transfer stamp is on the fold of the letter, at the back dated 19 MY 98
(two isolated and ‘improved’ images of those two stamps also attached)

The question I have is on the address -

what is after 11 Gro’ Place on the last line ?

It looks like a figure 2 and then maybe a J or a T in script, or possibly a Q (which was often written like a figure 2) and then something else.

The address on one of the other letters is simply ’Uppr Gros’ Place with no number.

Eunice and Ron
