ca.1850s "SAN FRANCISCO CAL" San Francisco, California CA, VF black cds plus "10" handstamp in black on stampless ENVELOPE to Clyde, Wayne County, New York. Envelope is slightly discolored from water damage (during the transit??), however the envelope itself is very interesting as it is a linen/cloth lined security envelope usually used for mailing money. While plain in appearance, this represents a lot of history!

1846 "EASTON / Pa." Easton, Pennsylvania PA, VF red Feb 13 cds, and manuscript "5" rate marking. "WILMINGTON / [Del.]" Wilmington, Delaware DE, F-VF red Feb 15 cds on reverse as receiver. Folded letter with contents: Extensive 3-page letter from father (farmer at Greenwich?) to son (away at school), discussing family matters, health, the farming business, etc. A very interesting and personal glimpse into life at that time. It is unusual for such covers to bear a receiver, but in this case close examination shows that the address was corrected, likely resulting in a one day delay, thus Wilmington applied their postmark. Attractive and very interesting.
