FINE. A RARE EXAMPLE OF THE ST. LOUIS POSTMASTER'S PROVISIONAL SPECIFICALLY ROUTED VIA TERRE HAUTE. A REMARKABLE COVER.
The contents read in part "We now have 2 Mails pr. day going East, this we send by the new route which they say is the quickest, by this evening's mail we will remit you Sunday Bank Notes &c for our Co." The sender, Wm. Nisbet & Co., sent a second cover the same day via the more established route via Louisville.
Ex Pope and Faiman.
