This J.C. WIlson Well Done! cover has been postally used from Morant Bay, Jamaica to Hamburg, Germany, a rare use. Addressed to Messrs. Hesse, Newman & Co., the cover bears two 1d Llandovery Falls Jamaican stamps, no. 31, issued in 1900, and a Half Penny Queen Victoria stamp, no. 16 from 1883 through 1890. The stamps are cancelled with a double ring Morant Bay cancellation dated April 1, 1901. The cover has a blank back, making it unknown to Henry Gates, named here as variety E-2, but with the flap imprinted “MARCHALLECK & CO, MORANT BAY, JAMAICA WI”.
Below, the reverse of the cover showing a Kingston, Jamaica back stamp dated April 2, 1901, and a receiver from Hamburg dated April 19, 1901.
According to the Commercial Directory of British, Dutch, Danish, and French Colonial Possessions in Central and South America and the West Indies, published March 1892, Marchalleck & Co. was a merchant in Morant Bay providing groceries & provisions, one of three merchants in the town—a rather obscure company to be using a J.C. Wilson cover for business use.
