Sale 896, Lot 523, Local PostsBush's Brooklyn City N.Y. 2 Cent Express. Red oval handstamp clearly struck in conjunction with brownish-red "P.O. City Despatch Post Jan. 5 - O'Clock" circular datestamp on Jan. 2, 1850 folded letter from Ann Sharpe in Brooklyn to Charles P. Williams on Front Street in Manhattan, sharp file crease

VERY FINE STRIKE OF THIS RARE BROOKLYN LOCAL POST MARKING. PROBABLY NO MORE THAN A HALF-DOZEN COVERS EXIST WITH THE HANDSTAMPED OVAL OF BUSH'S BROOKLYN CITY EXPRESS. THIS IS THE ONLY RECORDED EXAMPLE USED IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE POST OFFICE CITY DESPATCH LOCAL POST IN MANHATTAN.

Based on covers with the oval Bush's Brooklyn City Express handstamp, this post is known to have existed from early 1848 through early 1850. At least four covers are recorded in this period: 1) Feb. 14, 1848, Valentine cover to Mary Thompson with dated enclosure, ex Golden; 2) Mar. 30, 1848 folded letter to Charles P. Williams (same addressee), ex Mason and Hall; 3) Jan. 5, 1850, to Charles P. Williams, 192 Front St., with P.O. City Despatch datestamp, ex Hollowbush, the cover offered here; and 4) Valentine cover to Mary A. Richards with enclosure, ex Golden. Only a few other covers with Bush's handstamp are known.

To our knowledge, a city directory listing for the post has not been located, although a "John Bush, carpenter Fleet op Bolivar" and "Samuel L. Bush, merchant NY h 56 Harrison" are listed in the 1847-48 and 1848-49 directories (according to Scott's Stamp Monthly, May 1952). Perry noted that John O. Bush is listed as a "carrier" of "newspapers" almost continuously from 1851 to 1858 in New York City (Pat Paragraphs, reprint, p. 394).
