Maybe I am over-analytic but how can one reconstruct - with the conceit of hindsight - a route taken by a letter?

If I was researching it, I would be checking the records of ports and dates of the ships carrying cargoes and the mail! It's a long way from Indonesia to England by sail, so voyages were probably not very frequent!
