The 2c rate and Scott 210 stamp did not exist before October 1, 1883, and the Friends' stamps went out of use after June 1884, so this January 24th cover must be an 1884 use, which is a much later Type I use than the December 1879 date given by Ullom (Penny Post, Apr. 1993).

EXTREMELY FINE. ONE OF THE FEW KNOWN FRIENDS' BOARDING SCHOOL COVERS WITH THE STAMP TIED BY THE POSTMARK.

The survey of Friends' Boarding School covers by William Ullom (Penny Post, Apr. 1993) provides a count of covers with stamps, which includes six affixed to the front (including uncancelled stamps). Ullom defines the period of use for Type I from January 1878 through December 1879, but two known covers suggest a wider time frame for Type I usage.
