Bold strike of circular datestamp ties 3c Dull Red, Ty. III (26), trimmed right margin and couple minor perf flaws, on cover to Olive Branch N.C. with red and blue 7-Star Confederate Flag Patriotic design (F7-18), original letter enclosure datelined "Radcliffe Battery, Oak Island N.C. May 25, 1861" with red and blue 7-Star Confederate Flag with "Southern Rights" Banner Patriotic design (F7-9), "Whitaker, Wilmington" imprint, lengthy military content, cover slightly reduced at right

VERY FINE. A WONDERFUL COMBINATION OF TWO DIFFERENT 7-STAR CONFEDERATE PATRIOTIC DESIGNS, INCLUDING THE RARE "SOUTHERN RIGHTS" BANNER DESIGN ON LETTERSHEET.

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.

Ex Antrim. Accompanied by another letter dated in 1863 -- we are not sure if there is any connection, but it was present when the Kilbournes bought the cover from Earl Antrim. The C.S.A. Catalog does not list the F7-9 design on a lettersheet

Sale Number 1186, Lot Number 566, Patriotics-Handstamped Paid and Due MarkingsWilmington N.C. Paid 5, 30 Dec (1861), Wilmington N.C. Paid 5, 30 Dec (1861)Wilmington N.C. Paid 5, 30 Dec (1861). Mostly clear strike of integral-rate circular datestamp on buff cover to Fredericksburg Va. with green "Confederate States of America" Allegorical River Scene and Verse Patriotic design (MS-2, Verse 8), addressed to Mr. Jas. H. Hewitt, Company F, 3rd Regiment, N.C. State Troops, accompanied by original green lettersheet with matching River Scene, letter has interesting content describing local soldiers, skirmishes and the general exuberance that existed in the Confederacy at the end of 1861, including "Capt. Moores Artillery has had 2 fights since they have been in South Carolina, they have sunk 2 of old Abes vessels and one was a gun boat at that, Hurrah for the Southern Confederacy.", cover with couple small sealed tears and slightly reduced at right

VERY FINE. THIS ALLEGORICAL RIVER SCENE IS ONE OF THE RAREST OF ALL CONFEDERATE PATRIOTIC DESIGNS. THE MATCHING GREEN ON GREEN LETTERSHEET, WITH GOOD WAR CONTENT, MAKES THIS A HIGHLY EXHIBITABLE PAIR.

The verse on this design is particularly fervent, with a very questionable sentiment. It reads, "Death to each marauding band, who would defile this glorious land-- The white and black man's Dixie! For e'en our slaves would take a hand To drive the foe from Dixie!"
