Horizontal pair, roulettes on all sides, beautiful bright shade, tied by sharp strike of "Jackson Miss. Oct. 3, 1862" ("3" inverted) circular datestamp on buff cover originating at Baton Rouge (Sep. 24, according to docketing) and addressed to Miss Jeannie Mort at Vernon Miss., from the well-known correspondence from which many Baton Rouge provisional covers emanate, small mended edge nick at top center, backflap has either been replaced or removed and reaffixed inside out

VERY FINE. THE ONLY RECORDED USE OF THE BATON ROUGE ROULETTE FROM JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI. MAILED DURING THE SECOND CONFEDERATE OCCUPATION PERIOD.

Federal troops, which had occupied Baton Rouge since May 1862, evacuated the city on August 21, 1862. In their wake the Confederates maintained postal services on a restricted basis. In this instance, the rouletted stamps still on hand from the pre-May 1862 Confederate occupation were used on a letter (10c single rate) carried to Jackson, Mississippi, and posted there for Vernon. This usage during re-occupation is extremely rare, and no other examples cancelled at Jackson are known.

Pos. 21 acid flaw on cheek, roulettes on three sides, large s.e. at left, distinctive yellowish shade, tied by "New Orleans La. Apr. 18, 1862" river mail double-circle datestamp on bluish gray cover to Carroll Hoy & Co., usual filing pinholes

AN EXTREMELY FINE AND RARE USE OF THE BATON ROUGE ROULETTE. THIS COVER ORIGINATED AT BATON ROUGE AND WAS CARRIED BY STEAMBOAT DOWN THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER. THE NEW ORLEANS WHARF OFFICE CANCELLED THE STAMP WITH THE DOUBLE-CIRCLE DATESTAMP USED EXCLUSIVELY ON RIVER-BOAT MAIL, JUST TEN DAYS BEFORE THE FEDERAL CAPTURE OF NEW ORLEANS.

It is believed that the postmasters in New Orleans and Baton Rouge (and possibly other waterway post offices) had an arrangement by which stamps of either office would be accepted on mail posted from river boats. In evidence of this practice is a cover to Berwick City, Louisiana, with the Baton Rouge postmaster's provisional stamp cancelled by the New Orleans double-circle river-boat datestamp dated January 31, 1862 (ex Caspary, see 1984 Rarities sale, lot 11). There are also examples of New Orleans provisionals cancelled at Baton Rouge and other offices along the Mississippi River (Grant sale).

Covers addressed to New Orleans with the first General Issue tied by the river-boat double-circle datestamp are scarce, but enough exist to show that mail was regularly received from river boats and processed wharfside. Unless the contents are present or the cover is docketed with sufficient information, it is impossible to pinpoint the origins of these inbound New Orleans river-mail covers. In this case, the use of a 5c General Issue with the unofficial pierce en scie roulette made at Baton Rouge leaves no doubt as to the origin. The cover was postmarked at the New Orleans wharf on April 18, 1862, the first day of bombardments by Federal naval forces against forts below New Orleans and just ten days before the city surrendered to Admiral Farragut. Baton Rouge fell on May 7th.

We have not been able to locate another example of the Baton Rouge roulette cancelled at New Orleans. Ex Baer, Knapp and Meroni

ONE OF TWO RECORDED EXAMPLES OF THE MANUSCRIPT BATON ROUGE POSTMARK APPLIED DURING THE SECOND CONFEDERATE OCCUPATION PERIOD. A REMARKABLE USE OF THE BATON ROUGE ROULETTE.

After Federal troops evacuated Baton Rouge on August 21, 1862, the Confederates operated the post office on a restricted basis. The old handstamp town marking was not available, thus the necessity to cancel mail in manuscript.

The re-use of pre-war envelopes was commonly practiced in the Confederacy in response to paper shortages. However, examples of pre-war turned covers are scarce, and early usages with the U.S. 1851 Issue are rare. To find such an example with the perforated Archer & Daly stamp is true serendipity.
