Aug. 23" circular datestamp and manuscript "37-1/2" double rate to Rochester N.Y., confirmed by sender's notation "Double", forwarded to New York City with pair of Pomeroy's 5c Blue stamps paying double rate, the key to validating the use of Pomeroy's Letter Express is the red "Boyd's City Express Post, Aug. 31 9 O'C" framed datestamp, which could not be on this cover unless it was a conjunctive use with an Independent Mail company to carry it from Rochester to New York City, long tear across the front affects Boyd's marking, it is sealed with document tape but the certificate incorrectly states "scotch tape", despite condition issues this is a unique cover and very exhibit-worthy, this is the only recorded example of Pomeroy's Letter Express used with U.S. government mail to reach the addressee, with 2001 P.F. certificate

Albany" handstamp, some slight waterstaining around left stamp

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE COMBINATION OF A PAIR OF POMEROY STAMPS AND CONJUNCTIVE USE WITH HALE & COMPANY FOR SERVICE BETWEEN ALBANY AND BOSTON.

This letter was carried by Pomeroy from Lockport to Albany, then by Hale & Co. to Boston. The stamps paid the Pomeroy 5c and Hale 5c rates. Any on-cover use of a pair of a Pomeroy stamp is rare. We record six pairs of Pomeroy's Blue stamp on covers. A very similar cover to this one realized $4,000 hammer in our 1999 sale of the Golden collection.

Large margins, uncancelled, used on folded cover addressed to an attorney in New York City, street address "Nassau & Cedar Sts. 3d Story", delivered by Boyd's City Express with 2c Black on Green Glazed (40L1), full to large margins, cancelled by red "Free" handstamp (impression ties thru paper), matching "Boyd's City/Express Post/July 6, 9 O'C" framed datestamp, docketed on interior flap "E. Seeley Feb. 5 - 1844", vertical folds, one of which slightly creases Boyd's stamp, otherwise Fine, the docketing date must refer to earlier correspondence contained within this cover, presumably a document for a legal matter, the Pomeroy & Co. stamp is uncancelled, but the July 6 arrival date and conjunctive usage with Boyd's local post fit perfectly with other known covers -- in our opinion this cover is completely genuine, but obviously offered on its own merits, because an expert committee is unlikely to certify that the uncancelled stamp originated
