Inkwells and places visited

Last month, I posted a letter with the Portmeirion stamp, and a fishy one.
It arrived safely at its destination. I had also enclosed a photo I took in Portmeirion.
It was a lovely day to visit, and we usually try to get there once a  year.
I have also been out and about, visiting Plas Newydd. I don't have inkwells, but have a box with bottles!
Plas Newydd is home to a fabulous mural by Rex Whistler. This is part of his artbox on display.  He also was a letter writer!

Address book again

One address I need to put into my address book is causing me a problem... I enter addresses under the initial of the surname (I wouldn't have the problem if I used initial of first name), but the person's name has "van" in. I received a letter from this person yesterday and the return address label had van with a capital V. Vincent van Gogh is under G in the Encyclopaedia Britannica. Do I put the address under V, or under the name after the V? Maybe it is something I could ask in my reply.

July stats:
Letters out - 17.
Letters in - 13.
Postcards in - 2.
