AN EXTREMELY FINE AND VERY RARE EXPRESS COMPANY COVER TO A CONFEDERATE PRISONER AT JOHNSON'S ISLAND.

According to prisoner-of-war records, Captain Anderson was captured at Silvers Creek Va. and imprisoned at Sandusky on April 3, 1865, six days before Lee surrendered at Appomattox Court House. He was paroled on oath on June 18, 1865. While personal necessities and sometimes money was sent to Confederate prisoners, the amount noted on this cover, "$100.00", and the delivery by Adams Express make it an exceptional use.

Ex Kimmel, Kohlhepp, Allen, Hall and Walske. Illustrated and discussed in the Chronicle 95 (Aug. 1977)
