Sale Number 1225, Lot Number 303, Engraved Issues (Scott 11-13)20c Green (13), 20c Green (13)20c Green (13). Horizontal pair, large even margins, deep shade, faint diagonal crease in left stamp, thin diagonal scrape in right stamp, lightly cancelled by double-struck "Charlotte" (N.C.?) dateless circular handstamp (only the letters "CHARLOT" are discernible) on red and blue on yellow Standing Liberty and Flag Captured Union Patriotic cover with soldier's endorsement "From J. F. Holt, Co. D, 6th Tex. Smith's Brigade, Cleburn's Division, Army Tenn." and addressed to "Miss Nellie Wilkinson, Matagorda Co., Caney P.O., Texas" with route directive "Via Meridian & Brandon Miss.", 40c Trans-Mississippi Express Rate, either missent to Matagorda or possibly brought there first en route to the small town of Caney about 40 miles northeast, "Matagorda Txs. Apr. 6" (1864) circular datestamp ("6" in manuscript), backflap removed, small edge tears and a few erosion spots of little significance

VERY FINE. A REMARKABLE CONFEDERATE TRANS-MISSISSIPPI EXPRESS COVER SENT BY AN OFFICER IN THE ARMY OF TENNESSEE, USING A CAPTURED UNION PATRIOTIC ENVELOPE.

The 6th Texas Infantry, known as the "Matagorda Coast Guards," was mustered into service in 1861 and served throughout the entire war. In January 1863 the 6th Texas fought in the battle of Arkansas Post (or Fort Hindman), where a large number of its members were captured, including Lieut. Holt (he was exchanged six months later). The 6th Texas was reorganized in July 1863 and transferred to the Army of Tennessee.

Another cover from Lieut. Holt -- an identical Liberty and Flag captured envelope, prepaid 40c for Trans-Mississippi Express service -- was mailed by him at the time of the Battle of Chickamauga, in November 1863, to his mother in Matagorda (ex Everett, Siegel Sale 754, lot 450). After the battle most of the troops involved retreated to the area around Dalton, Georgia, and spent the winter there. This cover was sent from Georgia by Lieut. Holt in early March 1864. The pair of 20c stamps is the only indication of postage on the cover, but because the datestamp does not tie the stamps and appears to be a Charlotte N.C. marking, we must offer this "as is". Nevertheless, the Philatelic Foundation opinion states that the pair's use on this cover is "Genuine", while declining opinion as to the identity of the originating postmark.
