EXTREMELY FINE AND UNIQUE MIXED FRANKING USAGE WITH THE 1851 ISSUE
Mailed to a Mrs. Charles Emsfield of Newark, in care of Hon. J.C. Hornblower - a former chief justice of New Jersey and in 1856 the Vice President of the Philadelphia Republican convention that nominated John C. Fremont for the presidency. Hornblower or his secretary applied the 3c stamp and readdressed it to Chester Pa., this time in care of a Mrs. Richards. Docketing on back indicates it was received the next day by Mrs. Emsfield.
