Hewitt, Wilmington N.C., Whitaker imprint, faint toning

VERY FINE. AN EXCEPTIONALLY CHOICE EXAMPLE OF THIS RARE "SOUTHERN RIGHTS" FLAG DESIGN AND UNUSUAL FROM A POST OFFICE OTHER THAN WILMINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA, WHERE IT WAS PUBLISHED.

Although the concept of States' Rights is referred to in verses on patriotic covers, this is the only flag design which incorporates the words "Southern Rights." It was published by T. S. Whitaker of Wilmington N.C., who also published Confederate songs, including "The Stonewall Quickstep" by John H. Hewitt, who might be related to the addressee on this cover.
