This J.C. Wilson WLS-E02 “British Ensign Type II” cover was postally used from G.P.O. Capetown, Cape Colony on July 5, 1900 to Monsieur van der Edst (sp?), in Brussels, Belgium, and has a Bruxelles July 28, 1900 cancellation on the back of the cover. It has been franked with a Cape of Good Hope 2.5 pence stamp. There is a notation “By English Mail” noted on the front of the cover.

The reverse of the cover, at right, shows a Bruxelles July 20-21 1900 arrival cancel, as well as the
street address, which was not included by the sender on the front of the cover, and which led to the delay in delivery as the address was incorrectly specified.
