H. Starr, Agent P.O. Department" in Marshall Texas, file fold slightly creases corner of stamp at right

EXTREMELY FINE. A RARE AND VERY CHOICE BISECTED USE OF THE 20-CENT GENERAL ISSUE ON A COVER MAILED WITHIN TEXAS -- POSTMARKED ON MAY 22, 1865 -- ONE OF THE LATEST RECORDED USES OF A CONFEDERATE STATES STAMP.

This letter was sent on May 22, 1865, ten days after the last major battle of the Civil War, at Palmito Ranch, Texas. Four days after this was sent, the Confederate Army of the Trans-Mississippi, under General E. Kirby Smith, surrendered -- the last major Confederate command to surrender. This is the second latest recorded use of a Confederate General Issue stamp (the latest is dated June 7, 1865, from Marshall Tex.) and possibly the latest use of any cover actually sent through the Confederate postal system. An article in the Confederate Philatelist (Jul-Aug 1998) illustrates a stampless cover dated May 19, 1865, and surmises that it is the latest Confederate cover. The cover offered here is mentioned in the article, but it was unknown to the author that the letter confirms the postmark as May 22, rather than May 12.

The writer of the letter, Thomas P. Collins, was the Confederate postmaster of Crockett, Texas. He is writing to James Harper Starr, Agent for the Trans-Mississippi Department and therefore Collins' superior. The letter discusses a complaint that whiskey was being sold in the post office at Crockett. Collins denies that accusation and states that it was merely being sold in the same building, and defends the individual suspected of doing the selling, including an assurance that he is a "strictly sober man." Prior to the Civil War, Starr served as a commissioner of the Texas General Land Office and Secretary of the Treasury of the Republic of Texas. During the war he was agent for the Trans-Mississippi Department. His home in Marshall, "Maplecroft," was designated a state historic site in the 1970s and is open to the public.
