VERY FINE. ONE OF TWO RECORDED EXAMPLES OF THE CHARLESTON POSTMASTER'S PROVISIONAL ENTIRE ORIGINATING OUTSIDE OF CHARLESTON, AND THE ONLY EXAMPLE ADDRESSED TO CHARLESTON.

The Postmasters' Provisionals were intended for use at the issuing post office. The "Paid 5" marking on this entire can be interpreted either as indicating the Walterborough postmaster accepted the prepaid envelope, or that he did not recognize it and collected postage at the time of mailing. Only two such stationery uses are recorded -- the example offered here and one used from Adams Run S.C. to Aiken S.C. (offered in Sale 1065, lot 669). The recipient, Dr. Maynard E. Carrere, was a volunteer at the Confederate hospital in Charleston.

Ex Calhoun and illustrated in his Charleston book on p. 49.
