Used with two singles of 30c Orange (71), tied by segmented cork cancels and 1865 receipt docketing on cover to Christ Church, New Zealand, red "Boston Br. Pkt. Paid 8 Aug."

History and Commentary

The Angell Correspondence

Dr. Henry C. Angell was a Boston optometrist who spent considerable time traveling in Europe. Covers are known sent to him in France, Italy, England, Germany and Austria, plus a few forwarded to other destinations. Dr. Angell was an art collector and undoubtedly appreciated the wide variety of Civil War patriotic envelopes mailed to him overseas.
