This postcard was sent from London to my grandparents by their nephews...both Lees.  They were on leave from the front during WW1.  The soldier was later killed in Belgium.

This book of Cook’s Voyages was printed in 1790.  It was in a lovely colonial house we bought in 1975 whilst on leave in Western Australia from teaching in Papua New Guinea.  I confess I have not read the whole book of 406 pages  and it is the only time I have seen the spelling showing s letters as f letters.  Interesting.
A couple of pages for you to practice your Fs an Ss.
