An Act for granting to His Majesty Rates of Postage on the
Conveyance of Letters and Packets to and from Saint Do-
mingo and Cuba.
[21st March 1827.]
THEREAS by an Act passed in the Fifth Year of the Reign
of His present Majesty, intituled An Act for granting to
His Majesty Rates of Postage on the Conveyance of Letters and
Packets to and from Buenos Ayres, or any other Port or Ports
on the Continent of South America, reciting, that it might be
expedient that Packet Boats should be established to His Ma-
jesty's Colonies, and also to other Foreign Parts where Rates of
Postage had not hitherto been authorized, and that at the Time
of establishing such Packet Boats, Parliament might not be
sitting, and no Rates of Postage could in such Case be au-
thorized by Law for the Port and Conveyance of Letters and
Packets by the same; it was therefore enacted, that from and
after the Establishment of any such Packet Boats to any of His
Majesty's Colonies or other Foreign Parts, it should be lawful
for His Majesty's Postmaster General, and his Deputy and De-
puties by him thereunto authorized, with the Consent of the
Commissioners of His Majesty's Treasury of the United King-
dom of Great Britain and Ireland, or any Three of them, for
the Use of His Majesty, His Heirs, and Successors, to demand,
'have, receive, and take, for the Port and Conveyance of all and
every the Letters and Packets that should be carried or con-
veyed by such Packet Boats which might hereafter be esta-
blished as hereinbefore mentioned, such Rates of Packet Post-
age as should be equal in proportion to the Rates by the now
reciting Act made payable for the Port or Conveyance of Let-

'ters and Packets to and from Buenos Ayres, or any other Port
'or Ports on the Continent of South America; and it was further
' enacted, that as soon as conveniently might be after the next
Session of Parliament succeeding the Establishment of such
'Rates as aforesaid, the Receipt of such Packet Rates of Post-
age as might then be judged necessary and expedient should be
by such Session of Parliament authorized by Law: And Whereas
since the last Session of Parliament it hath been found expe-
'dient, for the Convenience and Improvement of Trade and Com-
merce, to establish Packet Boats between the Port of Falmouth
in this Kingdom, and certain Ports in the Islands of Saint Do-
mingo and Cuba in the West Indies; and such Packet Boats
have been established accordingly: And Whereas it is expe-
dient that the Rates of Postage for the Conveyance of Letters
' and Packets by Packet Boats, between the several Places afore-
said, be authorized by Law;' Be it therefore enacted by the
King's most Excellent Majesty, by and with the Advice and Con-
sent of the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and Commons, in this
present Parliament assembled, and by the Authority of the same,
That it shall and may be lawful to and for His Majesty's Post-
master General, and his Deputy and Deputies by him thereunto
authorized, for the Use of His Majesty, His Heirs, and Succes-
sors, at any Time after the passsing of this Act to demand, have,
receive, and take, for the Port and Conveyance of all and every
the Letters and Packets that shall be carried or conveyed by
Packet Boats from or to the Port of Falmouth aforesaid, or from
or to any other convenient Port in the United Kingdom of Great
Britain and Ireland, to or from any Port or Ports in the Island
of Saint Domingo in the West Indies, (over and above all other
Rates payable for the Conveyance of such Letters and Packets
within the said United Kingdom,) a Packet Postage according to
the Rates and Sums, in Sterling Money, hereinafter mentioned;
(that is to say),

For every Single Letter, One Shilling and Three Pence :
For every Double Letter, Two Shillings and Sixpence :
For every Treble Letter, Three Shillings and Nine Pence :
And for every Ounce in Weight, Five Shillings; and so in
proportion for every Packet or Letter above the Weight of
an Ounce:

Rates of Postage to be taken for the Convey

ance of Letters or Packets to or

from Saint Domingo.

And for the Port and Conveyance of all and every the Letters and Rates to or
Packets that shall be carried or conveyed by Packet Boats from from Cuba.
or to the said Port of Falmouth, or from or to any other conve-
nient Port in the said United Kingdom, to or from any Port or
Ports in the Island of Cuba in the West Indies, (over and above
all other Rates payable for the Conveyance of such Letters and
Packets within the said United Kingdom,) a Packet Postage ac-
cording to the Rates and Sums, in Sterling Money, hereinafter
mentioned; (that is to say),

For every Single Letter, Two Shillings and One Penny :
For every Double Letter, Four Shillings and Two Pence :
For every Treble Letter, Six Shillings and Three Pence :
