1848 "LOWER SANDUSKY / O." Lower Sandusky, Ohio, OH, VF red Jan 28 cds. Manuscript "15" rate marking and manuscript "Paid" along with red handstamped "PAID". The year date comes from the court clerk docketing "Filed Jan / 29 / 48" vertically across the front. This is an envelope, one of the earlier I have seen from this part of the country. Addressed to the "The Clerk of the Court of Com. [common] Pleas of Erie County Ohio" and with extensive text stating the names of the parties in the legal matter and with the statement "Sealed up and addressed by me / Chester Ellgerton Notary Public". Sent to nearby Sandusky, thus a 5-cent single rate. The envelope obviously contained bulky / heavy papers. This TRIPLE RATE cover is quite unusual in several respects. Only a tiny fraction of mail at this time utilized envelopes and only a tiny fraction of extent domestic mail represents the heavier rates. The sealing statement by the notary is also very unusual. This cover is worn, as expected due to the weight, and someone (maybe the judge?) did math calculations on the reverse. While not a beauty in one respect, there is a different kind of beauty in the such an unusual combination of features.
