Incoming from Heleen de Vaan - Netherlands

It took some time.

But eventually the enveloppe made in to Breda. It took TWO tries, but that brings the many traces. I see that one postage stamp hasn't been cancelled, so I probably will recycle the lovely envelope to give the postal office another go in adding something.....…
