VERY FINE AND RARE COVER FORWARDED BY THE LOUISIANA RELIEF COMMITTEE AND CENSORED AT MOBILE.

On May 31, 1863, a group of expatriate New Orleans citizens in Mobile, Alabama, organized a committee to alleviate the suffering of poor citizens who remained in U.S.-occupied New Orleans, Louisiana. With the tacit concurrence of Federal authorities in New Orleans, they arranged shipments of food and clothing to New Orleans and helped citizens leave New Orleans for the Confederate States. These “Louisiana Relief Committee at Mobile” trips between Mobile and New Orleans via Pascagoula ran along the Mississippi Sound and carried letters which were not sanctioned by the U.S. Jules C. Denis, C.S.A. provost marshal at Mobile, examined the southbound letters. The U.S. also used these trips to transmit P.O.W. flag-of-truce mail to and from prisoners in New Orleans.
