Thanks a lot Edna for this lovely cover with special cancellation... And I do love the two magnets included in the envelope!!:D
Cancellation on 150 Death Anniversary of Johann Nestroy.

The Austrian writer, actor, singer, playwright and satirist Johann Nepomuk Nestroy (1801 – 1862) was beyond doubt one of the most significant representatives of the old Viennese popular comedy.His spontaneous improvisations in the middle of a performance were always a thorn in the censor’s flesh, since it was in this way that he was able to find a hearing for his socially critical content. Nestroy died in Graz on 25 May 1862 at the age of 61, following a stroke. Naturally, he continues to live today in his literary works.
